Houthi rebel fighters said they had repelled another assault by the UAE-backed forces on Al Hudaydah airport as battles for the strategic port city intensify.

The group’s media wing supported their claim with a video showing a convoy for the Gulf-backed troops under attack while trying to advance at the southern perimeter of the Hodeideh Airport.

At least 5 armored vehicles were completely destroyed by ATGMs. Scores of the UAE-backed forces have been also confirmed dead.

Despite the non-stop firefight and strikes, the port kept operating. Dock workers hastily unloaded three ships sent by the United Nations World Food Program that contained enough food for six million people for one month.

Clearly the Houthi were prepared. Like Sloviansk battle where Strelkov held off ten thousand poorly motivated Ukrainian fighters with ATGM and few hundred men. Likely the Houthi have shelter during aerial bombardment. Then Houthi appear fire ATGM and return to shelter. The Saudi efforts will rush to conquer ground targets where Saudis become targets. Saudis have invested in conquering airport and will waste men in a rush to control airport for their pride. Meanwhile the Houthi will efficiently effectively use ATGM to destroy Saudi vehicles and supplies. Where are the French mercenaries ?

Maybe Saudi mercenaries should chew khat, wear flip flops and just walk.
Driving around in aircon 4×4 listening to nasheeds doesn’t seem to working very well.
