Iran threatens to hit Saudi, Abu Dhabi and Dubai air and sea ports, ships more missiles to Yemeni Houthis

Military tensions rise in the Gulf region amid Iranian threats and supplies of extended-range missiles to the Yemeni insurgents.

Tehran has warned Riyadh that unless the Saudi blockade of Yemeni ports is lifted, Revolutionary Guards missiles supplied to the Yemeni Houthi insurgents will be loosed against the seaports and airfields of Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The warning was forwarded to their governments through the Omani back channel.
The Iranians informed Riyadh that by cutting off Yemen’s lifeline, the oil kingdom exposed itself and its allies to retaliation in kind.
DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources add that, to give their warning sharp teeth, the Revolutionary Guards have been pumping fresh supplies of new surface missiles to Yemen by sea. Although the United States, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates maintain fleets in the Gulf of Aden and Red Sea routes of access around Yemen, none ran interference to the missile shipments. Such action would entail halting the Iranian freighters and confronting the missile-armed Iranian warships and submarines escorting them..

Our sources also report that Iranian experts have managed of late to lengthen the range of the ballistic missiles shipped to Yemen. The Burkan 2H, which Yemeni Houthis aimed at Riyadh airport last Saturday, Nov. 4 – and was intercepted – had a range of 1,000km.  The latest model of this missile has an extended range of between 1.500 and 1,600km. But it remains to be seen if Tehran is also providing the Houthis with the high-precision missiles delivered to the Lebanese Hizballah.
In an interview on Sunday, Nov. 6, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir charged that Hizballah officers posted to Yemen had actually fired the Burkan missile at Riyadh airport from northern Yemen. The Saudis have not disclosed details on how and at what point it was intercepted.

Within range of the extended-range missiles are the UAE’s Khalifa Port, Zayed Port and Mirfa Port, the backbone of the emirate’s free trade zone and the main source of its prosperous economy. With the rising military tension in the Gulf region in the last few days, air defense missile batteries have been deployed at those ports and the UAE air force, one of the largest in the Gulf, placed on high alert.

        It is time for the board monitors to delete all such jackass posts. Maybe the board monitor thinks it is provocative and will interest readers to let Iranian fascists and other Jew haters post here, but they have many forums on the internet where they can post with their other haters . Here they are a big distraction and get in the way of intelligent posts. So please Mr. Board monitor, block their IPs, and when you see such posts from other IP addresses, block those IPs, and delete the posts immediately. They ruin what should be an intelligent board for strategic discussion.

    It’s time the Sunnis ditched the Fatah and Hamas factions in favor of a military and economic pact with Israel. This will bring strong US backing. With a combined US, Israeli and Sunnis Arab alliance, Iran should back off. If not, well the war drums are beating and the battle is close at hand.

    The Talmud in Avodah Zarah 2b states that the nation of Edom (which, according to the mystics, refers to the Western nations such as the U.S. etc.) and the nation of Paras (Persia/Iran) will be the last two powerful nations standing just before the coming of the Messiah. And the Talmud in Yoma 10a discusses whether Edom will fall into the hands of Paras during the wars preceding the coming of the Messiah, or vice-versa.

    An early Midrashic source, the Yalkut Shimoni (Yeshaya 60:499), records the following amazing but scary prophecy regarding the events that will unfold just prior to the Messianic Era: “Rabbi Yitzchak said: The year in which the King Messiah reveals himself [to all of mankind], all the nations of the world will be fighting with each other. The King of Paras [Persia] will fight with the King of Arabia, and the King of Arabia will go to Aram [Syria] to seek counsel from them. The King of Paras will [attempt to] destroy the entire world, and all the nations of the world will be screaming and confused and falling on their faces, and they will experience pains like those of a woman giving birth.

    The nation’s refer to Israel/Joseph/Ephraim and Manassah…. Talmud is sacred history NOT historical truth. The Babylonian Talmud and Mishnah is just that, Babylonian. Historical truth certainly tells another story/ Genisis 48. & 49. Joseph was thrown in jail for righteousness sake. The “Wilderness of the Nations” refers to Israel 10 not Judah. The Malki Tzedik Priesthood first fruits of the return.

        Deranged uneducated blind followers of Perverted Versions of Islam are the ONLY dangers to the World. The Superpowers play Chess with Everyone’s lives to line their pockets.
        In the 70’s America armed and funded Bin Laden against Russia. They created the Monster then abandoned him. The pattern continues with Russia, Syria, Iran and Hizballah. They are in the Nuclear Crosshairs of Israel if the Doomsday scenario unfolds because some crackpot Ayatollah does something Idiotically. You can insult and demean each other but this is the Real Scenario for EVERYONE. The resulting Nuclear Cloud will poison the rest of the World.

    And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, “O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy.” And the Lord did grin.

    Sorry to ruin the party, but the people of Iran do not like the Ayatollah and if the Shah follows the Shiite religion, and honors the Saudi King anyways, they will make peace with Israel and fight The FSB, instead.

    Nothing good can come from this. Both countries will target oil fields, refineries and other infrastructure.
    My guess is that Iran will have the upper hand, unless ALL of the Sunnis join forces. At the backhand the Lebanese/Hizballators might open up a front against Israel which will make it harder for the Sunnis to join forces, and fight Iran. Iran has a vast superior army and navy, and air defence. The air force is not very modern. Iran has an endless amount of man power, and are well trained and willing to die.

      And with all the money the IRG and the Ayatollah and the clerics put in their overseas bank accounts, and overseas real estate holdings and market accounts, the military in Iran is always running short of funds. Because everyone in government there steals. They steal from the funds they are supposed to manage and from taxes. And they force citizens to give them bribes for normal services. It is even more corrupt than Nigeria. Even Mahmoud Ahmadinejad admitted that more than $5 billion dollars a year was being stolen and you know if he would admit to that much, the real sum has got to be 200 times more.

    These countries are now reaping what they have sown. The terror they rained upon the world is now coming now to haunt them. A war in this region, however horrible that will be for the world will delay their terror war and propaganda war elsewhere. I hope that Israel is prepared to send a strong message that if one bullet is shot its way that their will be hell to pay.

    Debka lying like the rest of Zionist media, how is Iran going to ship missiles to Yemen. Yemen is surrounded from air, land and sea by Saudi Arabia, Us and their allies. Unless these missile go to Yemen with Saudi permission it will be impossible. Yemen has missiles which they bought from Russian and when they are bombed daily by Saudi cowards who are frightened to send their force in and fight Yemeni instead of bombing schools, markets, hospital, schools, civilians and……………… what do you expect them to do.

    May be if the Saudi stop bombing Yemen and leave Yemen alone there would be peace!
