[ALMASDARNEWS] The Ministry of Oil and Minerals, affiliated with the government of Yemen ...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of... i President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, announced on Sunday the targeting of the pumping station for the Safer oil pipeline in the Sirwah District of western Marib.
The ministry accused the Ansarallah (var. Iran's Houthi sock puppets ...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth. Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi is said to be the spiritual leader of the group and most of the military leaders are his relatives.

According to the Oil Ministry, "this targeting by the terrorist militia of the oil pumping station represents a criminal, sabotage and catastrophic act on the path of continuous depletion of the state’s capabilities and confirms the fact that the Iranian-backed militia has insulted and tampered with the capabilities and property of the Yemeni people, and it only speaks the language of sabotage and demolition. "
"The militia’s committing this cowardly act and heinous crime is an affirmation of the fact that it is seeking to destroy all the capabilities and progress of the Yemeni people. Hysteria perpetrated continuously and continuously in all regions and governorates of Yemen," they continued.
According to the statement, "The militia seeks from this operation to mix cards and direction and continue its destructive wars against national gains."
In the statement, the ministry appealed to all political forces and components at home and abroad to "quickly intervene, put an end to this terrorist militia, take appropriate measures that ensure the cessation of such hostile and outrageous acts against the Yemeni people, and take possible measures to protect the remaining vital facilities that the Yemeni people possess."
The statement pointed out that "this destructive work would fail the strenuous efforts made to create an attractive investment environment and climate and impede the return of foreign oil companies to the country to resume its activity in the production and export of crude oil."

[HindustanTimes] Five army commandos, 5 terrorists killed in LoC 'hand-to-hand' battle
The army began hunting for this batch of terrorists on April 1 when they infiltrated into Kashmir with ground troops reporting footprints near the LoC fence that was covered under snow, said an army officer.
In a dark day for the army's Special Forces (SF), five commandos belonging to an elite unit were killed in action along the Line of Control in Kashmir's Keran sector on Sunday during an intense close-quarter battle with an equal number of terrorist infiltrators who were all eliminated, three officers familiar with the details said on Monday on condition of anonymity.
The bodies of the commandos and the terrorists were found barely two to three metres from each other, said the first officer cited above.
In a statement issued on Monday, the army said all five terrorists were killed in "an intense hand-to-hand battle."
"The Indian Army launched a daring operation at the LoC and engaged Pakistani-supported infiltrators in a close-quarter battle in heavy snow, neutralising the entire infiltrating batch of five. Four soldiers under the command of a junior commissioned officer from one of the most professional Para SF units were heli-dropped near the LoC after information on the infiltrators was received," the army said.
Three of the commandos were killed at the encounter site while two succumbed to their injuries while being airlifted to a military hospital.
The army began hunting for this batch of terrorists on April 1 when they infiltrated into Kashmir with ground troops reporting footprints near the LoC fence that was covered under snow, said the first officer cited above.
The army's search teams made contact with the terrorists and engaged them in firefights four times between April 1 and April 4 before the commandos from 4 Para (SF) were called in to take over the operation and hunt the intruders, he said.
"Based on visuals from unmanned aerial vehicles, the SF troops were staged forward to the nearest battalion headquarters by air as the location was winter cut off (due to heavy snow)," said the second officer cited above.
At the crack of dawn on Sunday, the five commandos began tailing the infiltrators following their footmarks on the snow. Several hours later, the footprints indicated that the infiltrators had gone towards a nallah and were hiding there.
"One of the squads didn’t realise that they were on a cornice. The complete snow block collapsed taking the squad leader and the two scouts down all the way to the nallah where the terrorists were sitting... It led to a close-quarter battle at almost point blank range," the officer said. The two commandos in the other squad rushed to provide support to their comrades who were locked in an intense close-quarter fight with the terrorists. In the ensuing engagement, the five commandos were successful in killing all the infiltrators but at the cost of their own lives.
"Despite the fall, the commandos killed all the terrorists because of their superior training standards," the officer said.
The army on Monday identified the fallen commandos as Subedar Sanjeev Kumar from Himachal Pradesh, Havildar Davendra Singh from Uttarakhand, Paratrooper Bal Krishan from Himachal Pradesh, Paratrooper Amit Kumar from Uttarakhand and Paratrooper Chhatrapal Singh from Rajasthan.
May the commandos find themselves directly passing through the Pearly Gates or reincarnated as Brahmin warriors, as the case may be, while the jihadis enjoy the interesting pleasures of the Muslim Hell.
