The Houthis launched a new limited military operation south of the southern Saudi province of Najran on May 3. In the course of the operation, the Yemeni group captured a strategic mountain chain near the al-Sudais mount.
A video of the operation, released by the Houthis media wing, shows Houthi fighters targeting Saudi-led coalition and its proxies with heavy machine guns as they advance near al-Sudais. Several bodies of Saudi-backed fighters, who had been killed in the clashes, can be also seen in the video.
After securing the mountain chain, the Houthis uncovered loads of weapons and ammunition, including heavy machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades, which had been left behind by coalition troops.
The Houthis have stepped up their operations along the border with Saudi Arabia, as well as in the Kingdom’s southern provinces of Najran, Jizan and Asir since the beginning of this year. The Saudi-led coalition appears to be unable to put an end to the Yemeni group’s cross-border attacks.
