Houthis Capture Key Marib Dam From Saudi Proxies In Central Yemen (Map Update)

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

The defense of Saudi-backed forces in central Yemen officially collapsed.

On February 18, the Houthis (officially known as Ansar Allah) captured Marib Dam, located in a close proximity to Marib city.

The city remains the last major stronghold of Saudi-backed forces in Marib province and central Yemen itself. The nearing fall of the city into the hands of the Houthis marks the developing collapse of Saudi-backed forces across the entire country.

The Saudi-led intervention and the war on Yemen turned into a disaster for Riyadh and now the Kingdom is fiercely searching for ways to somehow contain the growing losses.
