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.

Oppressed? They’re the ones who started this war! And they were working with Yankee DIA when Saleh was prez, until massive protests pushed Saleh to resign when he tried to change constitution to get Yemen rid of democracy by becoming life-term president and grooming his son as successor! Note that Saleh was already Northern-Yemen dictator from 1978 to 1990 before becoming elected prez for the unified country. Houthis did a coup to reinstall Saleh which they assassinated when he ended coming to an agreement with legitimate prez Hadi to stop this disgusting war! Didn’t you noticed that before the assassination… Read more »

I doubt they would make ridiculous claims to save face, unlike the Saudi’s. Saudi Arabia oil infrastructure should be infiltrated and targeted to maximise damage to them, making the war increasingly expensive and not worthwhile.

You really have to hand it to the Houthi’s, they have caused tremendous uncertainty and headaches for the Saudi-led coalition.
