On July 17, the Houthis carried out a new attack on Saudi-led coalition positions in the southern Saudi province of Asir.
In the course of the attack, Houthi fighters stormed several well-fortified positions of the coalition and its proxies in the area of al-Majazah al-Gharbiya.
The Yemeni group’s fighters also destroyed three damaged IAG Guardian armored vehicles and an Oshkosh M-ATV mine resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicle, which had been left behind by Saudi-led coalition troops.
The Saudi-led coalition has been trying to secure the Kingdom’s border with Yemen for more than four years now, with no success what so ever. The Houthis are not only stepping up their cross-border attacks, but also increasing their military presence in Saudi Arabia’s southern region.
