Saudi-led Coalition Suffers From Heavy Losses In Failed Dali’ Attack (Video)

Donate

The Houthis repelled on July 12 a large ground attack by the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies on their positions in the area of Qa’tabah in the central Yemeni province of Dali’.

A video of the clashes in Qa’tabah, released by the Yemeni group’s media wing, shows Houthi forces targeting Saudi-backed fighters with a M61 Vulcan 20mm Gatling cannon mounted on a pick-up truck. Houthi fighters can be also seen destroying a position and a vehicle of the coalition with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs).

Last May, the Houthis launched a large-scale military operation in Dali’. The Yemeni group’s fighters achieved major advance in the province without facing any real resistance from Saudi-backed forces.

The Saudi-led coalition failure in Dali’ will likely encourage the Houthis to develop their military operations in central Yemen. The Iranian-backed group is already stepping up its attacks in the province of Ma’rib.
