BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 P.M.) – The Houthi forces claimed on Thursday that their troops had defeated another big assault by the Gulf-backed Southern Resistance Army and Yemeni Republican Guard at the Hodeideh Airport.
According to Houthi forces’ official media wing, their troops beat back a big assault from the UAE-backed forces at the southern perimeter of the Hodeideh Airport on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Houthi forces added that their fighters inflicted heavy casualties on the Gulf-backed troops that were attempting to seize the airport .
On Tuesday night, the UAE-backed troops claimed to Sky News Arabia that they had seized the Hodeideh Airport from the Houthi forces; however, the latter released footage on Wednesday evening from this installation to contrast their claims.
Both sides claim control of the Hodeideh Airport, but it appears the installation is still contested, as neither side has provided any definitive footage to corroborate their claims.
