On Thursday morning, the Saudi-led Coalition – backed by the Hadi loyalists – attempted to enter the Midi District for the 4th time this week after losing over 400+ fighters during their previous attacks.
However, once again, the Saudi-led Coalition and Hadi loyalists were stopped in their tracks by the Houthi forces and Yemeni Republican Guard after a fierce 4 hour battle that ended with the aggressors withdrawal.
According to the Yemeni Republic Guard spokesperson, the Saudi-led Coalition and Hadi loyalists lost over 50 combatants on Thursday, including several mercenaries that were hired by the Gulf nations.
The Saudi-led Coalition and their allies have now lost over 450 military personnel during their failed offensives at the Midi District these the last 4 days.
Countering the Yemeni Army’s claims, Saudi state television alleges only 65 casualties have been recorded in the last 4 days, with most of the dead being Hadi loyalists.
