The struggle for Ma’rib is escalating, and the recent successes of Ansar Allah threaten all of the military achievements of the Saudi-led coalition.
Riyadh is aware that a military defeat in Yemen will inevitably lead to the destabilization of the situation within the kingdom itself.
November 2nd is the day when the Houthis (Ansar Allah) reveal further details of their Spring of Victory operation, in which the movement wrestled away control of the Al-Jobah and Jabal Murad districts in Ma’rib province.
The first part of the operation was a roaring success.
Currently, 11 out of 14 districts in Ma’rib are in the hands of the Houthis.
Another push is expected in the coming weeks, as finally the strategic, oil-rich city is within reach.
It is the final significant Saudi-led coalition stronghold in central Yemen, and its capture would allow Ansar Allah even more daring operations against their adversary.
Still, as has become customary, every Houthi victory of any sort is accompanied by calls by the “international community” that a humanitarian crisis is impending.
None of these claims accompany the Saudi-led coalition’s bombing campaign and constant ceasefire violations in al-Hudaydah.
Recent reports of alleged Houthi attacks on civilians are emerging in line with this operational logic.
Ansar Allah are doing so well, that they would simply work against themselves by bombing civilians, something the Saudi-led coalition has been known to do on more than one single occasion.
Reportedly, a Houthi ballistic missile attack on the Yemeni province of Marib has killed and injured 29 civilians, including women and children.
This was announced by the information ministry of the Saudi puppet government in Aden.
Separately, on October 30th, at least 12 civilians were killed in the airport of the interim capital.
The cause of the blast was unknown.
At least 26 people, including three members of the International Committee of the Red Cross, were killed and scores were wounded when explosions rocked the airport as ministers disembarked from an aircraft.
It wouldn’t be a stretch for the Saudi-led coalition to blame it on the Houthis, yet again.
After all, on the same day, in the city of Taiz three children were killed and three more were seriously injured in alleged mortar fire, also blamed on Ansar Allah.
The Saudi-led coalition, furthermore, attempted to boast that it also had defensive success against the Houthis.
In a statement, the coalition said that airstrikes targeted Ansar Allah fighters and vehicles in the district of al-Jubah in the southern part of Ma’irb as well as in the area of al-Kassarah in the western part of the province.
Reportedly, at least 218 fighters were killed and 24 vehicles were destroyed.
It is likely that this is a heavy exaggeration by Riyadh in order to attempt to boost the tattered morale of those fighting on its behalf.
The Houthis keep pushing, and they seem to be unrelenting this time.
