News reports from January 17, 2022 tell us that the Houthi faction ruling Yemen is responsible for a drone and missile attack on United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) oil infrastructure.
Though not as major of an attack as the one that struck Saudi Arabia, it was still a widening of the ongoing war between the Saudis and IRGC-backed Houthi militants.
In the big picture and the Second Signpost, nothing has changed. The ongoing wars between Sunni and Shia Muslims have continued in Syria for many years, and are still ongoing in Yemen.
This is all preparation for the Second Signpost.
