Houthis Capture Several Positions In Yemen’s Al-Jah (Video)

Donate

On August 24, the Houthis attacked on several positions of the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies in the town of al-Jah on the western coast of Yemen, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV. As a result of the attack, the Houthis captured a HQ of the coalition and the main market in the town.

A military source told al-Masirah that Houthi fighters killed several Saudi-backed fighters as well as destroyed an armored vehicle and a pickup truck of the Saudi-led coalition during the clashes in al-Jah. The Houthis also captured several mortar cannons and heavy machine guns.

Saudi-led coalition warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on the positions captured by the Houthis during the attack. However, the coalition airstrikes were affectless.

The attack is likely an attempt by the Houthis to distract the Saudi-led coalition attention from the advance towards the coastal city of al-Hudaydah, which is located 85km northwest of al-Jah.

    The Houthi bros seem pretty happy about this thing, but what is it? Mortar tube? Combat Bassoon?

      He is happy because he got fat loot. :)
      It’s mortar, probably the one from 1:56.
      BTW, since bassoon is fagot, the only real Combat Bassoon is 9K111 Fagot. :)

    Yesterday I found a report that the Houthis have launched a military operation in Najran region following missile strikes at Saudi military bases. Now additional reports are emerging including Houthi announcement they are engaging Saudi forces in Najran and have killed/wounded dozens.

    The reporting is still limited and even the Houthis have limited info, for example, no video. This would imply operation into enemy territory may still be ongoing – video could give away intel to enemy.

    Have to see where this goes.

    “The Houthis also captured several mortar cannons and heavy machine guns”

    The longer the war goes on, the better equipped the Houthis will be.
