Amid of the collapse of their military operation to capture the port city of al-Hudaydah, the Saudi-UAE-led coalition kicked off a new attack against the Houthis in the countryside of the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.
According to reports, the main part of the attack took place in the district of Nihm where pro-coalition forces were backed up by the Saudi Air Force.
So far, the coalition-led forces have achieved no gains in this new advance. The Yemeni capital is surrounded by miltiple defense positions of the Houthis. So, the advance there has always been a problem for the coalition-led forces.
At the same time, the situation south of the Houthis-held port city of al-Hudaydah remained tense. The coalition has failed to capture al-Hudaydah, but it’s still massing troops south of it. If the advance there is re-launched, the main clashes will once again take place in the al-Hudaydah airport.
