BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 A.M.) – The Saudi Coalition and their allies launched a big assault on the southern axis of Hodeidah, Sunday, in a bid to crack the Houthi defenses at the provincial capital.

Led by the Yemeni Republican Guard and UAE-backed Southern Resistance Army, the pro-government attack targeted the Houthi fortifications in the Jah Al-Aalaa region that is located in southern Hodeidah.

According to the official media wing of the Houthi forces, their fighters managed to repel the pro-government troops that were seeking to fracture their lines in southern Hodeidah.

The Houthi forces said that they inflicted heavy casualties within the ranks of the pro-government troops, while also adding that they destroyed a number of armored and technical vehicles belonging to the Yemeni Republican Guard and Southern Resistance Army.

In response to the failed offensive, the Saudi Coalition began heavily bombing the Hodeidah Governrate last night, hitting a number of sites around the provincial capital.

Despite this failed assault, the pro-government forces did achieve a major advance last week when their troops entered the Hodeidah Airbase after a fierce battle with the Houthi fighters at this military installation.
