Moments ago in the Saudi city of Najran, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard – backed by the Houthis – imposed full control over 3 Saudi military sites after a series of intense firefights with the Saudi-led Coalition Forces on the border of Yemen.
According to a battlefield journalist, the Saudi-led Coalition Forces suffered heavy casualties near the southeastern perimeter of Najran, resulting in their subsequent withdrawal from 3 military sites before the Saudi Air Force’s F-16 fighter jets pounded the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis.
In the last 48 hours, the Houthis and Republican Guard have made several advances along Najran’s southern axis, leaving the Saudi-led Coalition Forces in a world of trouble.
Last month, the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis Captuted the strategic Saudi city of Rabouah, marking the first time during this conflict that the anti-Hadi forces seized an entire city in Saudi Arabia.
This embarrassing defeat to the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis led many to question the effectiveness of the Saudi airstrikes and their ground assault, as they proved ineffective in both northern Yemen and southern Saudi Arabia.
As a result of their failures in Yemen, the Saudi-led Coalition Forces have called on more reinforcements from the Sudan and Mauritania; however, they have been relatively ineffective thus far.
