On Thursday, Houthi  fighters launched two attacks on positions of Saudi-backed foorces in Wadi Shwaq and Al-Maqataa in Al-Jawf province.

Furthermore, Houthi forces launched a Zilzal-2 rocket on a gathering of Hadi forces and the Saudi Alliance in Al-Muzaa area in Taiz province. The Houhtis also destroyed a vehicle of the Saudi Alliance in the Medi Desert and damaged a bulldozer of the Saudi alliance in Al-Muzaa area in Taiz as well.

Saudi warplanes carried out 22 airstrikes on targets in Haradh and Madini areas and 3 airstrikes on targets in Al-Zahari area in Taiz. 4 airstrikes hit targets in the area of the Anabara mountain in Al-Jawf.

The United Nations has declared that the epidemic of meningitis has begun to spread in Yemen like the Cholera epidemic. The United Nations considered war the main cause of the spread of these diseases.

The war has led to the collapse of the healthcare system in Yemen and the Saudi air campaign destroyed clean water sources in many areas of Yemen.
