On June 13, Houthi fighters destroyed thirteen vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies while defending their positions south of the port city of al-Hudaydah along the western Yemeni coast, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV. The Houthis targeted the vehicles with ATGMs, rocket-propelled grenades and IEDs.
Earlier, the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies launched their ground attack on al-Hudaydah. According to Yemeni sources, the coalition has failed to capture any key position south of the coastal city so far.
Meanwhile, the Emirates News Agency (WMA) announced that four service members of the UAE military were killed in Yemen, including a First Lieutenant of the UAE Navy. This confirms that the Houthis managed to hit a warship of the Saudi-led coalition as they had claimed before.
Pro-Houthi sources claimed that several warships of the Saudi-led coalitions attempted to land troops on the coast of the city of al-Hudaydah in the early hours of June 13. However, the attempt was foiled by the Houthis and the Yemeni Navy.
The Saudi-led coalition may repeat the attempt in the upcoming days, especially that its troops appear to be unable to advance towards the airport of al-Hudaydah south of the city.
