The Saudi Army’s long-awaited offensive at the strategic border-city of Rabuah in the Asir Governorate turned disastrous on Friday and Saturday after several attempts to break-through the Yemeni Army’s defenses.

According to the Yemeni Army’s spokesperson, the Saudi Army and the Arab Coalition suffered heavy casualties on Saturday after a long battle at the northern perimeter of Rabuah,

The Saudi whistle-blower, Mujtajid, confirmed that the Saudi military and their allies also lost a significant amount of military personnel to the Yemeni Forces; this includes the capture of Saudi Colonel ‘Abdullah Fahd al-Qahtani.

As a result of the significant casualties they sustained over the last 48 hours, the Saudi Army has officially withdrawn their forces and ended this phase of their offensive at Rabuah.
