On July 18, the Houthis repelled yet another attack by the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies on their positions in the central Yemeni province of Dali’.
The Yemeni group’s media wing released a video showing Houthi fighters defending their positions in the district of Qa’tabah, in the heart of Dali. The fighters can be seen targeting Saudi-backed forces with recoilless rifles and heavy machine guns.
Saudi-led coalition warplanes supported the failed attack by conducting several airstrikes on the Houthis’ positions in Qa’tabah. However, the airstrikes were ineffective.
Earlier this year, the Houthis captured a large part of Dali’ in the course of a large-scale military operation. Since then, the Saudi-led coalition and its local allies has been attempting to push the Houthis out of the province, with little to no success.
