BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – The Houthi forces killed scores of Saudi-backed fighters inside the Al-Jawf Governorate of northern Yemen, yesterday, the Yemeni group’s official media wing report.

According to the Houthi forces, their fighters foiled a large attack launched by the Saudi-backed Hadi loyalists in the Al-Khalifeen area of Al-Jawf on Monday.

The Houthi forces added that their fighters killed at least ten Hadi loyalists, while also destroying two armored vehicles before the latter finally made the decision to retreat.

Since the death of former Yemeni President ‘Ali ‘Abdullah Saleh, the Hadi loyalists have attempted to take advantage of the turmoil between the Yemeni Republican Guard/Saleh loyalists and the Houthi forces; however, it has only benefitted the pro-government troops in the southwestern part of the country.

Below are photos released by the media wing of the Houthi media; they show the aftermath from Monday’s battle:
