BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 A.M.) – The Yemen Civil War has been raging for over three years now and the country’s political situation remains uncertain.

With two major entities vying for power, Yemen has witnessed an increase in hostilities over the last six months, despite repeated attempts by the international community to reach a political settlement.

Unlike previous years, the Houthi forces are no longer on the offensive in several parts of Yemen; this is due in large part to their falling out with the Yemeni Republican Guard after the assassination of former President ‘Ali ‘Abdullah Saleh.

Since Saleh’s death, the Yemeni Republican Guard has played a major role in the collapse of the Houthi defenses in southwestern Yemen.

The Yemeni Republican Guard and their allies from the Saudi-led Coalition are now on the offensive in the strategic province of Hodeidah, as they attempt to capture the last major port under the control of the Houthi forces.

Thus far, the Saudi-led Coalition has seized a large portion of southern Hodeidah, as a new battle rages at the municipal airbase.

Yemeni Republican Guard will not be able to survive & sustain in the long run without the Saoudi air and ground support and will be finished by Houthis. In the Hodeidah Port & open Plains they might have an upper hand but in the mountains they will be sitting ducks plucked one by one by the Houthis. Houthis are extremely effective in guerrilla attacks.

So effective that they lost more than half of the territory they controlled in 2015 and the 4 fifth of the shores.
There are way to enforce real no-go zones in mountain areas nowadays, we’re no more in the 80’s…
