The Houthis captured 14 positions in the southern Saudi province of Asir in the course of a limited military operation against the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies, the Yemeni group’s media wing announced on May 11.
Houthi fighters killed at least one Saudi-backed fighter and captured another one during the clashes. They also destroyed five armored vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) and rocket-propelled grenades.
The Houthis launched their limited military operation in Asir in the beginning of this month. By May 5, they had managed to capture the hilltops of Salim, al-Shuel and Syaf in the southern part of the Saudi province.
The Saudi-led coalition has made several attempt to fend off the Houthis’ attack. However, they have failed.
