On March 1, the Houthis media wing announced that Houthi fighters had destroyed four vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition with IEDs in the Khabb wa al-Sha’af district of the northern Yemeni province of al-Jawf.
Furthermore, Houthis fighters attacked an al-Jalah military position at the Saudi-Yemeni border in the southern Saudi province of Jizan and destroyed a M1A2 Abrams battle tank of the Saudi Army, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV. The media outlet added that Houthi snipers had killed two Saudi soldiers there.
The UAE-based al-Arabiya TV reported that the Saudi-led coalition had destroyed nine positions and a vehicle belonging to the Houthis in different areas of the northern Yemeni province of Saada on March 1.
One of the Saudi-led collation airstrikes targeted a key position of the Houthis in the Kitaf wa Al Boqe’e district, according to the al-Arabiya. Seven Houthi fighters including a well-known explosives expert named “Qassim Hussain al-Maziji” were reportedly killed.
After failing to besiege the Saada province, the heartland of the Houthis in Yemen, the Saud-led coalition stepped up its aerial operations against the Houthis there.
