Houthis Capture Several Positions, Kill Dozens Of Saudi-Backed Fighters Around Yemeni Capital

The Houthis captured several positions from the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies in the district of Nihm, northwest of the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, during a recent attack, the al-Masirah TV reported on February 23.

“The attack was focused on the fronts of Harib Nihm, al-Qarn and al-Dbuah … It ended with the capture of several positions of the mercenaries,” a military source told Yemeni channel.

In the course of the attack, the Houthis killed and injured more than 30 Saudi-backed fighters. The Yemeni group also seized loads of weapons and ammunition, which had been left behind by coalition troops.

The Saudi-led coalition stepped up its offensive operations in Nihm following the UN-sponsored ceasefire agreement in northern Yemen. According to the available information, the coalition’s main goal is to reach the Yemeni capital, which is controlled by the Houthis.

The UN-sponsored ceasefire agreement could be extended to cover Nihm and several other key districts in northern and central Yemen during the next round of peace talks. This would be a major achievement for the Houthis, who have been holding onto their positions around Sanaa for more than three years.

    “The Yemeni group also seized loads of weapons and ammunition”
    This is a positive, maybe some sniper rifles like the one pictured above? :)

      They had a lot of practice. Yemen is where the Evil Orb powers (US, Saudis, UAE) started al Qaeda. Houthis have been using the slower-moving head-choppers to zero their scopes for years. It takes a mountain sniper without shoes to really appreciate superior German optics.

    hope SAA is watching….

    cut the bs deals and Agreements…that are not between the legitamate government of syria, but between russia and Turkey!!!!!

    • Zionism = EVIL

      At the end of the day, the Syrians can only depend on Iran and Hezbollah. Putin is under total Zionist control and Erdogan is a snake and totally in Americunt and Zionist pockets. More Jews go to Turkey now than ever before and the Turkeys have full military cooperation with Zionists. Russian plan is to carve up Syria in there zones and protect its only foreign military bases in Latakia and Tartus. If Russia really wanted to defeat the headchoppers it would have declared a no-fly zone over Idlib and bombed the hell out of the Turkish proxy terrorists.

    ” UN-sponsored ceasefire agreement in northern Yemen. ” so now we have 2 ceasefire zones one in south west and another now north of country. I guess that Saudis called uncle and can’t push forward anymore.

    Now we just need the east to be put under cease fire. then Yemen will most likely be partitioned. then 2 years later the Saudi backed south Yemeni government falls. this leads to another war where houthis push into southern and parts of central Yemen. While rest is divided up between Oman and Saudi Arabia.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The Ansarollah are getting very professional and now have access to new anti-material rifles and even ghillie suits. In the past two months they have inflicted heavy casualties on the Saudi scum and their mercenaries.
