BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 P.M.) – The Saudi Coalition resumed their offensive in the strategic Nihm District of the Sana’a Governorate, today, targeting the several hilltops that are currently under the control of the Houthi forces.
Backed by heavy airstrikes, the Saudi Coalition and the pro-government Yemeni Army troops began their attack on Monday by storming the Houthi defenses at the eastern sector of the Nihm District.
The Houthi forces said they were able to repel the Saudi Coalition’s attack on the Nihm District, adding that they killed several enemy fighters in the process.
However, pro-government media channels contrasted the Houthi reports, stating that their troops managed to capture several points inside the Nihm District on Monday.
The Nihm District is imperative to both sides as it is the gateway to the provincial capital of the Sana’a Governorate.
