On December 7, the Saudi-led coalition and pro-Hadi forces advanced in western Yemen and managed to cut off the highway between the region of Albuqa and the province of al-Jawf east to it, according to the UAE-based al-Arabiya TV.

The Albuqa region is one of the Houthis’ strongholds near the Yemeni-Saudi border and a part of the province of Saada, the heartland of the Houthis in Yemen. The Saudi-led coalition advance near Albuqa will make it harder for the Houthis to conduct cross-border attacks against the Saudi Army.

Earlier, the Saudi-led coalition and pro-Hadi forces captured the town of al-Khawkhah 115km south of the strategic al-Hudaydah port on the red sea in western Yemen. According to al-Arabiya TV, 20 Houthi fighters were killed, and 11 others were captured during the clashes in al-Khawkah.

The Al-Hudaydah port is the largest sea port under the Houthis-held part of Yemen. The Saudi-led coalition banned all the ships from entering the port in November after claiming that the Houthis were using it to smuggle missiles from Iran.

The Yemeni al-Masirah TV said that Saudi-led coalition warplanes conducted dozens of airstrikes on Saada and al-Hudaydah supporting pro-Hadi forces.

The pro-Hadi forces attacks in western and northern Yemen are a clear attempt by the Saudi-led coalition to benefit from the recent crisis between the Houthis and forces loyal to the recently killed former Yemen president – Ali Abdallah Saleh. Saleh was killed by the Houthis in the city of Sanaa on December 4.

    It is the same thing the SAA did in northern Hama when HTS and Isis were fighting each other. Also if they Reach the Saudi Arabian border they could probably go for this or Sanaa.

    Saudis foreign policy controlled by America and Israhell. Why because America wants to sell their weapons and to take their oil money.

    If today Saudis say that we will import weapons from Russia instead of America then tomorrow there will be no war between Saudis and Yemen and there will be peace in the Middle East. American and Israhellis are Antichrists.

      In that case there won’t be any Saudi on the throne either. It’ll be a win-win situation for the world but as long as Saudis rule Arabia, weapons import from the UK, US and France and Wahhabi terror export to the regions of the world which the empire needs will not stop.

    The treatment of Palestinian and Yemene people is unfair, one sided and should not be tolerated. I stand with Palestine and Yemen.

  • Rob

    Yemene people are dying due to starvation and no medicines and medical facilities.

    Russia should have to open military port in Sudan for the help of Yemeni people to get humanitarian aid from Russia.

    Only after 3 years has the Saudi coalition been able to gain ground. Only after creating a cholera outbreak, and creating political instabilities has the Saudi coalition gained ground.

    Death to the House of Saud!
    Death to the enemies of Yemen!
