BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The Ansarallah forces launched a big offensive last weekend to capture several important areas in northern Yemen, including the Nihm District of eastern Yemen.

This offensive would prove incredibly successful for the Ansarallah forces, as they were able to seize much of western Marib, leaving them only 30km away from the provincial capital.

While the pro-government forces have since launched a big counter-offensive and retaken some territory, the Ansarallah media wing released a short video on Sunday that shows dozens of enemy vehicles destroyed in several parts of northern Yemen.

The billion dollar army can not defeat this small group? If God is not with them then who is it?

Are you sure you’re not confusing Marib City with al-Hazm in Jawf? The Houthis do hold Sirwah near Marib, but that’s on a different road than route 5 which Nihm is on. Breaking through at Nihm and capturing the junction gave them control of the road south of Hazm, and they’ve approached to 30km on that road. They control the other roads to Hazm too.

Houthis are doing crapaganda : they’ve shown images of the same vehicles on dfferent angles last summer… Moreover they often show their own damaged gear.

It appears AMN resorts to censorship when they don’t like a particular comment or view. I posted a comment within the past hour and it has since disappeared. What gives.

Other than a burning tank that appears to be from a different area, that sure looks like a vehicle maintenance compound.
