Battle For Yemen’s al-Hudaydah On June 22, 2018 (Map, Video)

A military operation of the Saudi-UAE-led coalition and its proxies to capture the Yemeni port city of al-Hudaydah from the Houthis is crumbling.

The coalition’s forces have failed to establish full control of the al-Hudaydah airport south of the port city itself. They have also not been able to outflank the city from the eastern direction. The problems in this advance are mostly linked to the problems of the coalition-led forces’ supply lines.

On June 21, the Houthis carried out another attack on the coalition’s forces at their supply line in the western Yemeni coast. Houthi forces attacked positions of the coalition in the areas of Mdjelis and Makhliki cutting off a force of the coalition involved in the battle for al-Hudaydah from the rest of the coalition-occupied area.

According to pro-Houthi sources, at least 7 armoured vehicles were destroyed and about 30 fighters of the coalition-led forces were killed or injured in this attack.

If Yemeni forces are able to keep their gains in the coastal area, the coalition-led forces will not able to develop an advance in the al-Hudaydah countryside. Furthermore, the force involved in the operation may be eliminated.

Meanwhile, the Houthis increased their cross-border attacks against Saudi forces. They have carried out a series of attacks on positions in the Saudi provinces of Jizan and Narjan.

    They need to hunt the French-racist-bigots down, every one of them.
    Show the world the bodies of these Zionist-supremacist-bigots who have invaded the indigenous home lands of the Houthis.
