BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Houthi forces made a bold claim on Saturday that alleged their troops had killed 376 Saudi-backed fighters in the past 48 hours in the Hodeidah Governorate.
According to the Houthi-affiliated Masirah TV, the Saudi-backed forces attempted to advance north towards Hodeidah city, but were routed by the Ansarallah (var. Houthi Movement) fighters several times this weekend.
While Masirah TV did release footage of the Houthi forces repelled the Saudi-backed troops, there was no visual evidence to corroborate the claim of 376 pro-regime fighters killed.
Recently, the Gulf-backed Southern Resistance Army and Yemeni Republican Guard have been trying to advance in the Hodeidah Governorate; however, thus far, they have been unable to make any headway.
The Saudi-backed troop have now turned their attention to the northern province of Sa’ada, where they have managed to make some advances in the Baqim District.
