This week two F16s were shot down over Yemen. When the wreckage was examined, both were found to be of types never supplied to an Arab nation, not Saudi Arabia, not anyone. The only "buyer" in the region for that type of plane is Israel. A video received from Yemen, believed to be taken May 20, 2015, captures an explosion that, when analyzed by nuclear weapons experts, was judged -- by a very high probability -- to have been caused by a neutron bomb delivered by the Israeli aircraft.

Saudis Have 'Israel' Nuke Yemen for Them
Neutron bomb dropped by IAF plane with Saudi markings

Local Editor / Almanar

(May 25, 2015) -- Veterans Today website posted a report, prepared by Gordon Duff and Jeff Smith, on the bomb which fell on Naqm mountain in Yemen last week. [See the Veterans Today story below – EAW.] A video received from Yemen, believed to be taken May 20, 2015, of an explosion, when analyzed by nuclear weapons experts is, by very high probability, a neutron bomb that could only have been an Israeli attack. The analysis:

A. It is not a conventional 2k-lb bomb. It's much bigger.

B. Its either a very large MOAB bigger than 4,000 lbs. or; ???? Max weight for an F-15 / 16 is about 2,000-lb payload per-bomb-rack, making the deployment of a MOAB impossible.

C. Its appears to be a small neutron bomb. The size, color, lightning effect and duration of the fireball being suspended in mid-air and the very large mushroom cloud is the main giveaway. The CCD cameras imaging device was "scintillating" (detecting neutrons). That is the white pixel flashes in the video. When the photo has white pixel flashes in it, that is because it is being hit by neutrons from the nuclear fireball blast. It overloads the CCD's electronic circuit, producing white flashes.

If the radiation is too high, it will burn out the chip. They have big problems with this in Japan with the Fukushima robots' cameras failing due to very high radiation counts.

D. Delivery is most likely by an IDF F-16 with a Saudi paint job on the plane. They are not even hiding their use anymore. They just don't publicly admit it and the IAEA does nothing or says nothing. That is the true war crime. The UN just ignores it unless the US, France or GB complains.... Russia and China say nothing.

E. This is now the second known use of nukes in Yemen by Saudi Arabia.

Post Script:
A. The range of the camera is calculated to be about 4 to 5 miles from ground zero based on shock wave timing.

B. Saudi Arabia has no F-16's. The aircraft reported to be used to drop the bomb in Yemen were F-16's. Photos and acoustic signature confirms that the jet engines' noise is from a single engine jet fighter of the F-16 type.

Israeli F16's Falling from the Skies over Yemen
Two Israeli F16's, Painted as Saudi, Burning on the Ground in Yemen, Pilots "In the Wind"

(May 25, 2015) -- This week two F16s were shot down over Yemen. When the wreckage was examined, both were found to be of types never supplied to an Arab nation, not Saudi Arabia, not anyone. The only "buyer" in the region for that type of plane is Israel.

With two Israeli planes downed this week, fresh Saudi markings painted on them, and a strong confirmation of a tactical thermonuclear attack on a Yemeni airbase, a neutron bomb attack (NRR No Residual Radiation), the Yemen war is now clearly an Israeli war.

Yemeni air defense forces shot down a Saudi marked fighter jet in the northwestern province of Sana'a in Yemen as it was conducting airstrikes. This is the second F16 shot down this week -- clearly the strength of the Yemeni air defences has been grossly underestimated. The Saudi F-16 fighter jet was shot down and subsequently crashed in the Bayt Khayran area of the district of Bani Harith in the northern part of Sana'a.

On May 11, Yemen's Al-Masirah television reported that Ansarullah fighters brought down a Moroccan marked fighter jet violating the country's airspace in the Noshour Valley in the northern province of Sa'ada.

The aircraft shot down today had reportedly conducted a number of airstrikes against Yemen's Al-Dailami airbase. Saudi jets have been carrying out military strikes against Yemen since March 26.

According to Yemeni media outlets, on Sunday Saudi fighter jets targeted a factory in the western Yemeni province of Al-Hudaydah, killing three civilians and injuring 19 others. The Saudi fighter jets also targeted residential areas, a military airbase and a police headquarters in the province in separate attacks.

Now we come to the interesting part -- analysis of the wreckage shows these planes to be of unknown origin. While they carried Saudi paint jobs, we know that they cannot be Saudi aircraft and in fact are Israeli aircraft flown by Arabic speaking Israeli Air Force pilots, members of a special 'Kamikaze' unit that flies specially modified F16, 'nuke carriers' tasked for doomsday operations against Iran, Russia or Western Europe.

One of these aircraft was most likely responsible for dropping the neutron bomb on Yemen a few days ago. Yemeni media reports that two of the 'rockets' carried by the fighter jet remained unexploded and were found in the wreckage; these are most likely the Sidewinder missiles carried for defence against other aircraft. We do not know what other ordnance the aircraft was carrying.

The pilots of these two downed aircraft have not been found; no doubt extensive searches are being carried out -- an Israeli pilot captured alive would be quite a coup for the Yemenis.

The aircraft was shot down by an updated BUK system supplied by Russia -- Yemen is well-equipped with modern Russian weaponry including MiG-29s and advanced air-defence systems, a fact that has clearly been overlooked by the Saudis and their Israeli allies; they have grossly underestimated the capabilities of their enemy and as we have seen before, most notably in southern Lebanon against Hezbollah -- Israel does not do so well when it's victims are prepared and capable of fighting back; perhaps they thought they were bombing undefended civilians in Gaza?


Digital Cameras Provide Proof of Nuclear Detonation


Neutron Bombing of Yemen May 2015 Confirmed
Israel nuked Yemen, period. This is hard fact that has been 100% confirmed

Jeff Smith, with Gordon Duff and Ian Greenhalgh / Veterans Today

(May 29, 2015) -- By now, every VT reader will be aware that Israel dropped a neutron bomb on Yemen on behalf of their Saudi allies. As well as the readers of VT, a billion Arabs also know this truth, every Arabic media outlet picked up the VT story as have the Russian outlets Pravda, Russia Today and Sputnik News. This story is too big to die, it is worldwide.

Israel nuked Yemen, period. This is hard fact that has been 100% confirmed. Just watch the video, the scintillating pixels are caused by particles from the nuclear explosion hitting the camera's sensor, there can be no other explanation; note the white hot ball of plasma seen briefly before the huge detonation.

The Camera Never Lies
Until mobile phones with cameras and small video cameras were developed, small florescent lights were used as emergency nuclear explosion/radiation detectors. Now, phones and CCD video cameras have become dependable "slam dunk" nuclear detectors.

The next few words are the technical explanation of why we are absolutely certain we are dealing with a nuclear event, with no questions whatsoever. This is information available to all member of the press, the military, the scientific community and the general public. This means, of course, that anyone in "denial" of our assertion, proven with this much certainty, is defective as to mental function or suffers from moral degeneracy.

The combination of the camera's plastic lens and the photoelectric effect produced in the camera's CCD pick-up chip (because it is basically a very large array of photo diodes) allows them to act as very good detectors of high-level ionizing radiation. Low-level radiation, in this case, is not of concern because it will not immediately kill you or have long-term negative health effects.

By simply pointing the camera at an explosive event it will immediately determine if it is nuclear or not. When the camera's CCD pick-up chip is overloaded by excess radiation, it will pixelize, showing white sparkles all over the picture of the fireball or blast image area.

The demonstration video still was taken in Yemen this month. It is perhaps the best single demonstration image of ionizing radiation hitting a CCD receptor. It is as perfect a demonstration of a nuclear explosion as detected using mobile phone or CCD camera technology, as explained above, as might be possible.

We are contacting scientists and physicists throughout the Middle east and Ukraine; we are distributing software that will allow us to detect not just nuclear weapons but radioactive threats of all kinds including polonium poisons; we are training teams to collect soil samples; preparing packages to allow medical personnel to screen for radioactive poisoning and we are offering materials for civil defence and decontamination efforts.

There has thus far been zero denial or refutation (other than by wingnuts and conspiracy theorists) of this having been a nuclear event nor has there been any effective denial of the pair of F-16A/Bs shot down over Yemen this week; planes which can only have belonged to Italy, Portugal or Israel, otherwise it came out of the mothballed stockpiles in the US southwest.

Russia Speaks Out
As stated in Pravda today, the world’s scientific community is aghast that 'the Saudis have begun to wipe Yemen off the map', they get straight to the point by telling us that 'shocking video reveals proton bombardment from a neutron bomb' and that 'forbidden strikes have brought about a storm of worldwide protest' and might I add, this wave of protest isn’t going to be silenced by a handful of internet trolls and unemployed Haifa housewives.

'Obama has recently offered military assistance to any external threat the rich Arab Gulf States may face' according to Pravda. Russia is not only certain after viewing the evidence, that this is a nuclear attack but they believe that the United States is fully complicit in it. Where other sources have cited the Israeli-Saudi nexus, highest-level Russian sources believe this irresponsible move is the result of Washington kow-towing to both Saudi Arabia and The Gulf States.


Analysis of Bombing Attack on Yemen
Jeff Smith, a nuclear physicist, former IAEA inspector and aviation expert at Los Alamos National Labs provides an analysis of the situation

Photo analysis of the shot down F-16 in Yemen show that they are the early model; block A/B F-16 ground attack configuration version (it has the small or what is called the short tail) with Royal Saudi Air Force markings being newly painted on the airframe. All of the so-called Arab coalition aircraft are block C/D not A/B.

So this is probably one of the 50 surplus US F-16 A models given to Israel during the Clinton administration or it is a recently surplus ex-NATO aircraft either from Italy or Portugal. The only other option is that they were directly supplied from the US covertly. We need a serial no. or tail number to confirm which production block they came from.

I forgot it was carrying the 300-gal. center-line long-range bolt on conformal drop tank with no air to air refueling capability or ECM equipment. This is why it was shot down. Too slow and no countermeasures. It was also using the older APG-66 radar. Riyadh or UAE to Yemen is only 600 miles.

However, Israel to Yemen is 1,200 miles. An F-16 with 3 drop tanks, 4x 1000 lb bombs and 2 Sidewinder missiles for self-defense is do-able from Israel. The very same distance and mission configuration as needed to hit Iran.

From Press TV:
Yemeni army has shot down a Saudi warplane northeast of the northern city of Sa'ada, as Al Saud regime continues its aerial attacks against its southern neighbor unabated. According to Yemen's al-Masirah television, the Saudi plane was downed in Kataf district of the province.

Earlier in the day, another Saudi F-16 fighter jet was downed in the Bayt Khayran area of the district of Bani Harith in the north of the northwestern province of Sana'a. The fighter jet had reportedly conducted a number of airstrikes against Yemen's al-Dailami air base.

Saudi jets have been carrying out military strikes against Yemen since March 26. On May 11, Ansarullah fighters brought down a Moroccan fighter jet violating the country's airspace in the Noshour Valley in the northern province of Sa'ada.

Appendix I
A few hours later, the Saudi-led intervention in Yemen (2015–present) began. The Yemeni Air Force did not completely join the Houthi rebels, as most of the personnel refused to take orders from their former enemy.

Also the maintenance of the air-frames was mostly halted since the ousting of the Saleh regime in 2012 [15][16] and thus, at the beginning of 2015, the situation of the Air Force seemed chaotic with most of the personnel deserted and air-frames lacking maintenance, effectively preventing the Yemeni Air Force to enter in the fight, remaining grounded during the Saudi-led intervention. [17]

During the opening strikes in March 2015, it appeared that the Coalition strikes did not hit the main combat assets of the Yemeni Air Force, with limited attacks on the runways, secondary airport structures and logistics air-frames, even in face of fighter jets parked in the open.

During the initial strikes at al-Dailami airbase, pictures of the single CN-235-300M, one Beechcraft Super King Air, one AB-412 and one UH-1H destroyed or damaged on the ground emerged.

It is not clear if the Saudi coalition decided to spare the military aircraft in the opening hours and then this decision changed, or the initial strikes failed to hit the military planes which were subsequently hit by the following strikes.[18][19] Other sources reported that the initial strikes also targeted a number of Su-22s and F-5 jet fighters. [20]

Indeed, in the following few days, the coalition strikes started targeting the structures and air-frames to a more severe extent. On 15 April 2015, a Saudi debriefing showed the Arab coalition strikers destroying two Su-22 and one F-5 jet fighters while they were sitting on the tarmac.

The F-5 looked covered by a net, while the Su-22s were parked in the open. [21][22] Another picture showing the wrecks of two Su-22 and one F-5 jets emerged on 30 April 2015. [23] On 4 May 2015, evidence of a Yemeni Il-76TD at Sana'a International Airport engulfed in flames emerged.[ 24]

The fate of the Yemeni MiG-29 fleet remains unknown while the assessment on the actual number of other air-frames destroyed is difficult to establish. . . .
