On August 10, the Houthis’ media wing released a new video of the group’s recent large scale attack on Saudi-backed forces in the northern Yemeni province of al-Jawf.

The video shows Houthi fighters destroying fortified positions of Saudi-backed forces with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs). The fighters also captured two pick-up trucks and loads of ammunition.

A number of Injured Saudi-backed fighters, who were abandoned by their comrades, can be also seen being rescued by the Houthis.

The Yemeni group captured 37 positions in the district of habb Wa al-Sha’af in the northern al-Jawf countryside, during the operation. More than 41 Saudi-backed fighters and commanders were reportedly killed.

Al-Jawf’s operation is another blow to the Saudi-led coalition and its local proxies, who have been attempting to secure the border line for more than four years, with little to no success.

    Just magnificent, bravo Houthis.

      Another resistance group that prevailed against great adversity were the Vietcong , I think.

      The Saudi Coalition positions are easy to spot.
      Just look for a trash dump. That shows poor training, all that plastic can be reflective.

    No Russians allowed signs popping up everywhere and visa denials common .

    Regime fighters may well have the upper hand over open ground. However, they stand no chance in the mountains. Instead of securing borders and stalling Houthi fighters, the regime outposts are sitting ducks.

    Either regime fighters care little for the cause of their regime, or it’s their sloppy training letting them down. Lots of foreign fighters in regime uniform shows that there is little interest for war at home. When suadi top brass runs dry of foreign fighters, the best they could hope for, is an orderly retreat.

    was anyone else in aw of houthis generosity and HUMAN treat of their prisoners i would not be surprised if the some of these Saudi conscripts/mercs/penal troops changed sides.

    like for your overlords.. i mean officers just leaving to die cause you were shot in the leg and can’t walk, to only be saved by very same people who were supposed to be your enemy. But yet first thing they do is call medic to your location.

    hell i even thought that i saw some scenes where houthis never even bothered to take away guns from wounded soldiers. that level of trust it almost looked like they were liberating them.

      True and while I’m certain there are cases where something unfortunate happens, the Houthis routinely take prisoners.

      BTW I’m sick and tired of the Pete Hegseth on FOX who dismisses every U.S. war crime allegation with, ‘thank God there are U.S. serviceman who are willing to take the fight to the enemy …’, he touts his war experience.
      There is something about his demeanor that doesn’t sit right with me but he was in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanimo and he championis everyone from Eddie Gallagher from the men of Raven 23.

      I think that fighting wars, of choice, 6,000 miles from home is destroying our soul.

      Those are mainly poor yemenis and mercs with no other option to get their daily bread. Houthis know that apparently, so they dont kill them when caught and let them even flee attimes you have seen that on many vids too.
