BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:50 P.M.) – The Saudi military and the Hadi loyalists launched a big offensive in northern Yemen this week that targeted several areas controlled by the Houthi forces.

Backed by heavy airstrikes from the Arab Coalition, the Saudi military and Hadi loyalists stormed the Houthi positions in the Bayda region, resulting in a series of intense clashes.

While the attack was intense and had air superiority, the Saudi forces were unable to crack the Houthi lines after several hours of fighting on Monday.

According to the Houthi forces, their troops managed to destroy at least three armored vehicles and kill more than ten enemy fighters in the Bayda region.

As shown in the video below, the clashes were very intense and both parties engaged in close combat:
