The Houthis repelled a large-scale attack by the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies on their positions in the southern part of the Saudi province of ‘Asir on June 16.
A 5-min video released by the Yemen group’s media wing shows Houthi fighters launching several Zilzal-1 improvised rocket-assisted munitions (IRAMs) at coalition forces’ gatherings. The fighters can be also seen targeting Saudi-backed forces with heavy machine guns and artillery.
“We repelled an attack by the mercenaries of the aggressor … From the north [direction] … We killed four of them,” a field commander of the Houthis says in the end of the video.
F-15C warplanes and AH-64 Apache attack helicopters of the Royal Saudi Air Force and the Saudi Arabia National Guard supported the attack. However, their airstrikes were not effective.
The Saudi-led coalition has been trying to secure the Kingdom’s border with Yemen for more than four years now, with no success what so ever.
