Those mercenaries/Saudi soldiers should get on their knees and thank God they weren't captured by another of the Saudi regime's proxies (ISIS).

For the record:

“We have seen no foundry like Yemen for our soldiers. Each time we have sent an expeditionary force there, it has melted away like salt dissolved in water.” - Ottoman officer 16th century

You are right, alot of these are mercenaries; saudis began relying heavily on mercenaries --big mistake-- after last year humiliation when the houthis stormed the saudi army posts in Najran and killed everyone there.
Again, if they are mercenaries why do they look Saudi? They're not pakis. They're not Indian. Some look Somali but Saudi has a ton of black people. So they're Saudi.

This event is definitely a turning point in the war. Hope the Yemenis use as much leverage with this. The Saudis are falling flat on their face for their short sighted vision. They will be left with no friends with all the money they have.

Here are some of the captured saudis; houthis said they will publish new footages in the coming days

I don't understand this delusion about saudi wealth. They're not a rich country. The cashflow is there because of oil sales... but they don't have much of a reserve. Their reserves look high on paper, but the input costs of running saudi are not the same as Norway for example. Norway doesn't spend 15% of its GDP on American junk that isn't even being used properly half the time. Norway doesn't have to desalinate ocean water which uses half the country's energy. Norway doesn't have a completely useless population.

Saudi has like 9 million foreign workers. Imagine the money that's leaving the country!!! On paper they have money. But in reality without oil they're poorer than Afghanistan. By comparison Iran exports 0 to 2.5 million barrels a day and has FAR lower input costs to run the country. And the low non-oil exports are 100% due to sanctions and are artificially lowered. Saudi has 8+ million barrels of oil exports a day.

To me... Saudi isn't rich. What money they do have is being spent entirely on idiotic shit. 80+ billion is being spent on wars and weapons and APCs that blow up by the hundreds in yemen. Their energy grid that is being used to desalinate water eats up billions. Their foreign workers eat tens of billions. Their people do ****ing nothing and when they do they're as productive as a coked up giraffe.

Apparently some of them are yemeni. see that would make sense. Yemenis and Saudis look the same.

That's because that land is historically Yemeni, they were part of the Vilayat Yemen during the Ottoman Empire, only after the defeat of the Ottomans and the British aid to the outlaw tribe of wahabi saud did they manage to take those lands.

well, it has to be said and admitted, these yemenis are remarkable, and they have been in it for the last 1000 years, the world should understand better by now, leave the yemenis alone, or venture in at your own risk.

it is also now a done deal that armies need much more than weapons and billions in budget. a fighting spirit is by far more essential, and no amount of weapons can change that, in particular when the people you are fighting have nothing to lose.

Exactly, from the beginning that was a fight between the fiercest of the Arabs and the fattest arabs. And the fatty just sh*t himself once he saw the Yemenis in real combat

It's more of a fight between the scrawniest / hungriest pseudo-Arabs and the Fattest / Laziest pseudo-Arabs.
