Ansar Allah and its allies are developing their offensive against Saudi-led forces in the Yemeni province of Dhale.
According to pro-Yemeni sources, Saudi-led forces have retreated from the villages of Fakhir and Shakhab under pressure from the Yemeni resistance. Clashes are now ongoing in the western vicinity of Qatabah. Qatabah is the key stronghold of the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies in the artea.
Ansar Allah and its allies launched a push in Dhale in the second part of April. Since then, they have recaptured a large area from Saudi-led forces. If they capture Qatabah, this will become a powerful blow to the coalition’s influence in the province.
