On September 19, the Houthis (Ansar Allah) media wing released an infographic summarizing the operations of the group’s snipers in the first half of September.
According to the infographic, Houthi snipers killed 535 Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters and nine Saudi military personal between September 1 and 15.
Besides targeting Saudi-led coalition personnel, Houthi snipers managed to damage 14 heavy machine-guns and up to 12 military vehicles of different types.
Houthi snipers are usually armed with a variety of locally modified heavy sniper rifles and Western-made sniper rifles, which were captured from the Saudi military.
The Houthis rely on their snipers’ to inflect heavy losses on Saudi-led coalition forces. This simple tactic allows the Yemeni group to slowly drain resources of the coalition and its local proxies on several fronts.
