On November 3, the Saudi-led coalition shared footage showing some of its recent airstrikes on Houthis forces in the provinces of Ma’rib and al-Jawf, in central and northern Yemen.
Saudi-led coalition warplanes carried out 32 airstrikes between November 2 and 3. The airstrikes killed 145 Houthis fighters and destroyed 18 military vehicles of the Yemeni group, according to the coalition’s own claims.

The Saudi-led coalition’s superior air power has so far failed to stop the Houthis’ large-scale attack on Ma’rib city and nearby oil fields.
Around a week ago, Houthi fighters and their tribal allies successfully concluded the second phase of Operation Spring of Victory after capturing the districts of al-Jubah and Jabal Murad from Saudi-backed forces.
The Houthis are not only advancing on the ground, but also carrying out pinpoint strikes on the Saudi-led coalition’s allies in Ma’rib. A very recent missile strike that destroyed communication towers in Ma’rib city was attributed to the group.
