The Houthis advanced deeper in the central province of Dhale over the last few days following a new attack against the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies.
The Yemen rebel group’s media wing released two videos showing the attack on April 1 and 3. In the videos Houthi fighters can be seen storming Saudi-led coalition positions and destroying several military vehicles with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) and rocket-propelled grenades.
Last month, the Houthis established a foothold in Dhale following a large-scale operation. In the course of the operation, more than 250 Saudi-backed fighters were killed and injured. The coalition also lost dozens of military vehicles.
By advancing in Dhale, the Houthis are putting huge pressure on Saudi-led coalition troops in central Yemen and threatening the key city of Aden on the southern coast of the country. Despite this, the coalition is yet to take any action to stop the Yemeni group advance.
