Yemen’s Ansar Allah are not done with their operations against the Saudi-led coalition.
The fight continues on all fronts on October 22nd, with the Houthis (as Ansar Allah are known) pushing toward Ma’rib city and in the Jubah district.
On October 21, Ansar Allah announced that their missile force had targeted Saudi task forces camp in the Kingdom’s southern province of Jizan with five ballistic missiles.
The attack targeted a headquarters, ammunition depots and landing pads for AH-64 Apache attack helicopters in the camp.
According to the Houthis’ claims 35 Saudi service members, including officers and pilots, were rather killed or wounded.
Only one of the five missiles launched by the Houthis was intercepted by the air-defenses of the Saudi-led coalition. Saudi media confirmed that there had been casualties, without providing details.
The Saudi-led coalition responded to the missile strike by carrying out a series of airstrikes on the Houthi-held Yemeni capital, Sana’a. Riyadh’s forces claimed they had struck military targets.
Ansar Allah, however, accused the Saudi air force of targeting the departments of engineering, electricity, water and public works as well as medicine depots. As a result, a civilian was killed and three others were wounded.
On October 20th, a ballistic missile targeted the northern outskirts of the central Yemeni city of Ma’rib. It was allegedly launched by Ansar Allah, but there was no confirmation.
Media reported that the missile struck a residential district located next to the Sahn al-Jin camp. The military camp that hosts Saudi-backed forces was likely the main target of the attack.
According to Yemeni sources, at least 15 people were wounded in the missile attack. All of the casualties are allegedly civilians.
A few hours prior to the attack, the Saudi-led coalition announced that it had intercepted a ballistic missile that was launched from Yemen by the Houthis, flying towards Jizan. This was likely in preparation for the October 21st attack.
Both these attacks came amid heavy clashes, mostly in the Ma’rib district, in which the Houthis have captured large swathes in two separate operations recently.
Still, the Saudi-led coalition continues its heavy airstrike activity in a, mostly futile attempts to impede Ansar Allah’s progress.
The Saudi-led coalition claims that 48 Houthi fighters were killed and six military vehicles of the group were destroyed in the southern part of the province as a result of 14 airstrikes carried out by its warplanes between October 19th and 20th.
In recent days, the UN and other international organizations have begun warning of a worsening humanitarian situation in Yemen. This is a testament to the Houthis’ success in their operations.
It has become customary that each time Ansar Allah evidently take the upper hand in the war, various international groups and organizations immediately start calling for a cessation of hostilities. The absence of those voices is noticeable when it is simply Saudi Arabia violating ceasefires and carrying out airstrikes.
