Saudi-led Coalition Makes Significant Advance In Western Yemen (Videos)

Donate

On September 9, the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies captured more than 12km2 northeast of the district center of al-Durayhimi following heavy clashes with the Houthis, according the al-Arabiya TV. The UAE-based TV channel said that the coalition is planning to block the main highway between the coastal city of al-Hudaydah, north of al-Durayhimi, and the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.

Saudi-led coalition warplanes and attack helicopters backed the attack, which began two days ago, and conducted several airstrikes on positions of the Houthis northeast of al-Durayhimi. The airstrikes neutralized fighters and equipment of the Houthis.

On the other side, the Houthis began conducting a defensive operation in order to repel the Saudi-led coalition attack on their positions in al-Durayhimi. The Yemeni al-Masirah TV said that Houthi fighters destroyed three vehicles of the coalition with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) during the clashes around the district center on September 9.

Earlier this year, the Houthis repelled two similar attacks of the Saudi-led coalition on al-Durayhimi. The new attack may also fail, according to observers, who believe that the Houthis have the upper hand due to their better understanding of the battlefield.

    I wish the brave houthi fighters all the best. I also hope SA will finally bring them some good anti-aircraft guns. It is time they shoot down some choppers and make a nice video of that.

    Although this reminds me of the 5000 choppers delivered to troops in Vietnam, which made somebody very rich.

    Anyways, they should be able to defend themselves.

    “significant advance”? The UAE videos show a few mouthing off into the camera, a gun firing at the ground and a cannon + trailer being towed. That’s it, folks. For real life action, Houthi videos with their blown apart vehicles and dead/fleeing Saudi troops are infinitely more informative.
