Houthi fighters killed 399 Saudi soldiers and 1,894 fighters loyal to Saudi-backed President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi in 2017, according to a report released by the Houthis media wing on January 3.

In the report, the Houthis also claimed that their fighters destroyed 8 M1a2 Abrams battle tanks, 31 battle tanks of other types, 196 infantry fighting vehicles and 1,337 other vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition and pro-Hadi forces.

Furthermore, the Houthis announced that they were able to shoot down 19 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and to hit eight naval vessels of the Saudi-led coalition. The Houthis media wing report also claimed that in 2017, the Houthis launched 45 ballistic missiles at targets in Saudi Arabia.

The numbers in the Houthis’ report were not verified by any neutral source. However, some figures, like the number of the launched ballistic missiles, were confirmed in previous reports of the Saudi-led coalition itself.

On January 4, pro-Hadi forces claimed in a report that their fighters killed 1,739 fighters of the Houthis and injured 3,150 others in battles all across Yemen in 2017.

    Saudi Arabia is really spending huge money on this war against Houthis… Lets see where it leads them.

      Exactly where America was heading in Vietnam War.

    Pretty low numbers but lots of vehicles? Sounds like a lot of running away and leaving the equipment. Not exactly a high intensity war on all sides here.need some old style europeans to come back show us how to fight.

      You’re poor informed.

        Maybe but i think that if a rotten power like sa was starving my country to death thered be a few more mass attempts to seize sa territory or tet offensive type back area assaults. The russians for instance had their great patriotic war when the nazis invaded.

        For that matter why doesnt sa invade from all directions? Seems like they keep ramming into the chokepoints. Surely theres more freedom of maneuver.

          Seems to me their not doing to bad as it is,after all they are wearing flipflops and pretty much do all their work on foot! This is going to be a war of attrition,ots going to be their will versus how much armour and equipment and also moral of their troops that the saudis can bare to lose. The saudis are gettlng their noses well and truly put out here,whilst they try to project an image of massive strength and power in the region these rag tag fighters are so confident they just burn the equipment they take and laugh and dance! Even if the saudis now put massive forces in place and roll over these fighters the lasting image is clear,saudis are a joke.

    The Face Of Suffering: Famine, Cholera Wreak Havoc In War-Torn Yemen | NBC News

    Abdur Rabu Mansur Hadi <– took power from Abdullah Saleh but Hadi was too weak to rule the Yemen therefore, the corruption was too high. Houthis start complaining and when Hadi fail to rule then Houthis took power in their own hands. So this was Yemen internal affair. Therefore, Saudi Arabia should not interfere in Yemen affair.

    In Yemen war now US provides weapons and intelligence support to Saudi-led coalition forces, which reportedly include assistance in military targeting in Yemen. It indicates that America using Saudi Arabia to attack Yemen because Trump tells to Saudi Arabia that which area Saudi Arab collation should have to target in Yemen. That is why Saudi led collation air forces targeting funerals, Mosques, schools, hospitals, markets etc.

    All world leaders should have to support Yemen and end this human rights violations at least for the small kids that have no food, medicines and shelters.
