The Houthis raided on August 3 several positions of the Saudi-led coalition near the MBC mount in southern part of the Kingdom’s province of Jizan.

In the course of the attack, Houthi fighters clashed with Saudi-backed forces killing many and forcing the rest to flee their posts, leaving behind their weapons and ammunition. Moreover, the Yemeni group’s fighters destroyed a vehicle of the coalition with an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM).

Earlier, Saudi-led coalition forces attempted to advance in the Yemeni area of Jalha south of Jizan. However, local tribesmen repelled the attack after killing and capturing dozens of Saudi-backed fighters. An armored vehicle of the coalition was also destroyed.

The Saudi-led coalition failure in Jizan is an example of the current situation on the Saudi-Yemeni border, where the Houthis and their local allies successfully solidified their control over the last four years.
