On August 15, the Houthis repelled the Saudi-led coalition’s attack on the district center of al-Durayhimi located on the western coast of Yemen after 72 hours of heavy clashes, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV.

A source in the Defense Ministry of Yemen [loyal to the Houthis] told al-Masirah that Houthi fighters killed 180 Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters and injured 136 others during the clashes in al-Durayhimi. The Houthis’ battle tank hunters also destroyed 20 vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition, including several US-made Oshkosh Light Combat Tactical All-Terrain Vehicles, according to the source.

The Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies launched a surprise attack on al-Durayhimi on August 12. A day later, the coalition claimed that its forces captured large parts of the district center.

The failure of this attack will not likely discourage the Saudi-led coalition, which is determined to reach the coastal city of al-Hudaydah north of al-Durayhimi. The city’s port is the main target of the coalition as it is considered the last supply rout of the Houthis.
