On December 30, the Yemeni Air Force and the Houthis carried out a joint operation targeting gatherings of Saudi-led coalition troops in the Kingdom’s southern province of Jizan with artillery and armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
“A joint operation by the unmanned air force and the artillery force targeted gatherings of Saudi soldiers in the Qais mount near Jizan,” a military source told the al-Masirah TV.
The Yemeni TV didn’t reveal any additional details about the operation, which was likely a response to the recent attacks by the Saudi-led coalition. Two days ago, dozens of Houthi fighters were killed in a series of airstrikes by coalition warplanes on the northern Yemeni province of Saada and Hajjah.
These repeated attacks by both sides pose a serious challenge to the UN-sponsored peace agreement, which was reached during the recent talks in Sweden. So far, each side has accused other of violating the agreement, which reflects the lack of trust between them.
