Saudi's send Tank Strike Force to Yemen Border- Ahead of ceasefire?


Perhaps this is where the Malaysian and Senegalese troops come into play?

Malaysia: Here, There, & Everywhere? Downed planes & Saudi Troops

SkyNews
Hours after Saudi Arabia forces and Houthi rebels traded heavy artillery fire, Saudi-owned media reported the country is sending a "strike force" to its border with Yemen.
Al Arabiya Hadath TV broadcast pictures of a column of tanks loaded onto military trucks and described it as "the arrival of reinforcements from the strike force to the border".
 The fighting between Yemen's Shia rebels and Saudi forces in border areas came a day before a humanitarian ceasefire was due to take effect.on Monday,
Apparently a "Moroccan F-16 fighter jet taking part in the Saudi-led coalition against the Shia rebels, known as Houthis, has gone missing, Morocco said"
The Moroccan jet vanished at around 6pm (4pm UK Time) on Sunday, the Moroccan military said.
It was not clear what happened to it and there has been no word from the Houthis - which routinely fire anti-aircraft guns at warplanes of the Saudi-led coalition.
The Houthis said they fired Katyusha rockets and mortars on the Saudi cities of Jizan and Najran, after the Saudis hit Saada and Hajjah provinces with more than 150 rockets.
 Saudi planes also struck positions of the Houthi group in the central city of Taiz and in the oil-producing Marib province, east of the Yemeni capital Sanaa.
There were no immediate details on any casualties.
Air strikes by Saudi Arabia and other Sunni countries jets have been targeting the Houthis for about six weeks now, but have so far failed to push them back.
Was the plane shot down by the Houthis as some media outlets are claiming?
Is Morocco claiming the plane is down, so no ceasefire will take place?
Particularly when one considers the additional troops being wrangled up?

  1. Insider plot?

    Mamlouk hated that Syria was giving her sovereignty up to Iran. He thought there needed to be change,” an anonymous source close to the palace said. It is believed that the deceased Ghazaleh held the same opinion

    1. A possibility?
      I saw that news and found it conveniently timed with the chemicals weapons meme and the training of ISIS/AQ in Jordan- so... don't know what to make of it without reading way more on it then I had time to do today

      And insider plot with much outside assistance? If I get time, I want to read up on it

    1. Thanks- I saw some news somewhere afterwards the coup plot was bogus, the mastermind was not arrested, but rather walking free- spotted in Damascus..
      I thought something was off about that so called news
