At least 30 Saudi-backed fighters were killed or injured on September 13 in a joint operation by the Yemeni Air Force and the Artillery Force, both allied with the Houthis, according to al-Masirah.
“The joint operation of the air force and artillery units targeted gatherings of the Saudi aggression coalition’s militants in Hayran and Muthalath Ahim [in the northwestern Yemeni province of Hajjah],” the Yemeni news channel quoted a military source as saying.
In such joint operations, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are used to locate gatherings and positions of Saudi-led coalition forces as well as to correct artillery fire.
The Houthis usually use Rasid or even Samad-1 UAVs in these joint operations. Both types are equipped with electro-optical systems and data-links.
The operation shows how the different branches of the Houthis’ military wing are becoming more experienced and improving their coordination.
