There are little prospects for peace talks to settle the Yemeni conflict as the Saudi-UAE-led coalition continues its large-scale push against Ansar Allah (also known as the Houthis) and its allies across western Yemen.
The most intense clashes are still ongoing in the area of the city of al-Hudayday in the western part of the country. After an initial success of the coalition and its local proxies in the area, their advance has slowed down. Furthermore, coalition-led forces have suffered significant casualties – hundreds of fighters and tens of pieces of military equipment.
Ansar Allah advance south of al-Hudaydah played an important role in the dfefense of the port city. The Yemeni movement cut off the coalition’s supply line near Jabalia.
At the same time, clashes between Ansar Allah and coalition-led forces are also ongoing in the the areas of Qamt and Juban in southern Yemen as well as in the areas of Malahit and Kitaf in northern Yemen.
