The advance of the Saudi-UAE-led coalition is slowly turning in another failure. Coalition-led forces have not been able to develop their initial success in the battle of al-Hudaydah. Clashes around the city are still ongoing. However, no progress has been made by coalition-led forces over the past few days.
The coalition continued its attacks on Ansar Allah positions northeast of Malahit and in the Kitaf area in northern Yemen. Ansar Allah has carried out several attacks on position of coalition-led forces near the area of Damt.
Summing up the recent developments, the conflict in Yemen is once again moving towards a stalemate. The Saudi-UAE coalition is not able to capture al-Hudaydah or Sanaa as well as deliver a devastating blow to Ansar Allah. In turn, the Yemeni resistance is not able to force Saudi Arabia and its allies to admit their defeat in the conflict.
According to a spokesperson for the Yemeni Armed Forces (allied with Ansar Allah), Ansar Allah and its allies have killed 876 fighters of Saudi-led coaltion and wounded 2,150 others as well as destroyed 311 vehicles since the start of November.
