DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:40 P.M.) – Over the past 24 hours, Houthi-led troops have intensified their operations against Saudi-backed forces in the embattled province of Taiz, targeting the strategic Mocha port area.

Led by a missile battalion and the Popular Committees, dozens of soldiers loyal to the rival Aden-based government were killed in rural Taiz, according to Yemeni reporter Hesham Al-Kibsi. The source also claimed Houthi tribesmen combatted ISIS fighters in the area.

In addition, Saudi-backed forces at the town of Dhu Bab were bombarded Katyusha rocket launchers, destroying three armored vehicles according to Houthi reconnaissance units.

Elsewhere in the central province of Marib, Houthi tribal fighters killed 18 hostile soldiers amid intense clashes in the Sirwah District over the weekend.

Near the border with Saudi Arabia, Houthi contingents battled it out with Saudi soldiers while fierce clashes were reported in the Al-Masloob, Al-Ghail, and Al-Motoon districts along with the Al-Khalifain area in the desert governorate of Al-Jawf. The military source said Saudi proxies sustained at least 8 casualties while an AFV was destroyed in the process.

Hesham Sami Al-Kibsi did not wish to specify the Houthi death toll. Al-Masdar News journalist Rune Agerhus also contributed to this article.

Me gustaría que lancen un misil al campo petrolífero de la Monarquía para socavar su economía.

I strongly disagree with “un misil”.

In a more ideal world should be tens of thousands of missiles headed for their oil installations, preferably nearly simultaneously to make a saturation joke out of their Zionist air defences, not just a single missile.
