SANAA, YEMEN (9:00 P.M.) – The Saudi-led Coalition, alongside Hadi loyalists, stormed the Al-Hol area of the Sanaa Governorate on Wednesday, resulting in a fierce battle with the Houthi forces and Yemeni Republican Guard.

According to a Yemeni military source, the Saudi Army and their allies attempted to advance towards the Houthi positions in the Al-Hol area; however, they were led into an ambush that resulted in the death of several Coalition fighters.

The military source added that an Abrams Tank was also destroyed by the Houthi forces on Wednesday.

In response to the ambush by the Houthi forces, the Saudi Air Force carried out 12 airstrikes over the Sanaa Governorate, causing significant damage to residential buildings inside the Yemeni capital.

You should report more on Yemen, the frontlines are looking worrying; the Saudi coalition is very close to the capital, plus they’ve got more than one foothold across their border in the north. Not good.

I agree. And it’s not easy to find up to date maps of the evolution of the situation too.

I know Nihm is a concern but I don’t recall the Saudis advancing much if at all.

Those frontlines have moved very little for the past year and a half.
Nothing to worry about.
Also, what those maps don’t show is that the area that the houthi’s hold is very mountainous and near impossible to penetrate without getting ambushed and destroyed. It is the equivalent to the swiss alps in terms of defensibility….
