On February 7, the Houthis’ media wing released a new video of the group’s successful attack on the strategic Sulb mountain, west of the city of Ma’rib, and nearby military positions of Saudi-backed forces.
The video shows Houthi fighters clashing with Saudi-backed forces and raiding their positions in the mountain and its outskirt. The fighters can be also seen destroying several military vehicles with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs).
Following the successful attack, the Houthis imposed control of the Sulb mount. The Yemeni group’s fighters captured loads of weapons, including artillery pieces, battle tanks and armored vehicles, during the battle.
The attack on Sulb mountain was a part of Operation Solid Structure, which was announced by the Yemeni group last month.
As a result of the large-scale operation, the Houthis captured 2,500 square kilometers between the capital, Sanaa, and Ma’rib. The Yemeni group also claimed that thousands of Saudi-backed fighters were neutralized.
