On June 6, Houthi fighters repelled an attack of the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies on their newly captured positions in the town of al-Fazah along the western Yemeni coast, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV. Reportedly, the Houthis killed several Saudi-backed fighters and damaged an armored vehicle of the coalition during the clashes.
Earlier, the Houthis managed to capture al-Fazah and cut off the supply line of the Saudi-led coalition at the Taef-al-Jah-Husseiniya crossroad forcing the coalition to withdraw from the vicinity of the al-Hudaydah airport, south of the strategic city of al-Hudaydah.
The Houthis media wing also announced that the Houthis had launched an attack on several positions of the Saudi-led coalition in the region of al-Jah south of al-Hudaydah. During the attack, Houthi fighters captured three armored vehicles of the coalition and destroyed one other.
The Saudi-led coalition and its Yemen proxies will likely launch a second attack on al-Fazah soon in order to reopen their supply line along the western Yemeni coast.
