BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – The Pro-Saudi forces in northern Yemen managed to shoot down several Houthi attack drones that were attempting to bomb their positions inside the provincial capital of Marib on Thursday.

According to local reports, the pro-Saudi Hadi loyalists managed to shoot down at least three Houthi attack drones that were seen flying over their positions in Marib city yesterday.

No further details were released.

The Marib Governorate is mostly under the control of tribes and loyalists of President Abd Rubbah Mansour Hadi; however, there is a significant portion of the province that is also held by the Islamist Islah group and anti-government Houthi forces.
