BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – The Houthi forces scored an imperative advance this week when their troops captured the provincial capital of Dhale in southern Yemen.

Backed by heavy artillery and missiles, the Houthi forces were able to expel the UAE-backed troops in Qatbah city on Friday, putting an end to their reign over the provincial capital in Dhale.

Following the capture of Qatbah, the Houthi forces pushed their way south to the town of  Sabah, where they are now involved in a fierce battle with the UAE-backed troops.

The Houthi forces are making a new push towards the southern coast of Yemen in a bid to alleviate the pressure on their troops in the northern part of the country.

With the ongoing ceasefire in the coastal city of Hodeidah, the war in Yemen has shifted to the northern and southern parts of the country.

I’m neither a Shite nor a Sunni but nevertheless, “Go Houthis! Swat those reprobate Saudis and Emiratis”. Also, their Sudanese mercenaries need to find more honest work.

This article has some mistakes: First of all, Qatabah is NOT the provincial capital of Al-Dhale governorate but Al-Dhale City. It should’ve been written as “Qatabah town, the center of Qatabah district” something like that. Secondly, there’s no such town called Sabah, but Sanah. It’s a symbolic town that once borders between former North and South Yemen(s) before reunification in 1990. Finally, Ansarullah isn’t making a push to the coast yet as of now. They’ve just reached Stockholm agreement to halt Hadi-led offensives in coastal side anyway because Saudi Coalition are better at fighting at flat areas. The main objective… Read more »
