On May 31, the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies fully captured the district of al-Durayhimi 15km south of the city of al-Hudaydah, according to the UAE-based al-Arabiya TV. The TV station added that the coalition is now preparing to launch an attack on positions of the Houthis in the southern neighborhoods of the city.

Meanwhile, the UAE-based Sky News Arabia TV reported that warplanes of the Saudi-led coalition had carried out a series of airstrikes on several units of the Houthis in the village of Manakhah in the western part of the province of Sanaa. These units were on their way to al-Hudaydah, according to the source.

Yemeni source revealed that some commanders and fighters of the Houthis are withdrawing from al-Hudaydah now, while others are building fortifications and digging trenches in the urban areas of the city.

While the Houthis are highly experienced in mountain and desert warfare, they lack any real experience in urban warfare. Due to this, some observers believe that the Saudi-led coalition and its proxies may mange to capture al-Hudaydah.

    An urban environment is just as deadly for an attacking force…the Saudis may use the same idiot tactics with massed armour and mechanised infantry which will make no difference in house to house fighting

      Yes, and Suadis and proxies aren’t soldiers at all, but a ragged band of idiots. They have no idea how to fight with tanks in open, not to mention close quarters urban combat.
      Oh God, help free people from Western Sotonists.
      They really need some anti-tank missiles and anti aircraft ones, such are Russian ‘Igla’ or ‘Strela’.

    Well, they’re Arabs. Everyone focus’ on saving their own skin so everyone gets screwed over and dies…
