BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 P.M.) – The Saudi-backed “Southern Resistance” and Hadi loyalists stormed Mocha in southwest Yemen on Tuesday, reportedly entering this strategic coastal city after a fierce battle with the Houthi forces.

Despite claims that they have captured the city, the Saudi-backed forces only control a small part of Mocha city.

Houthi sources confirmed that the Saudi-backed forces did in fact enter Mocha, but they denied all rumors claiming the latter seized the city.

This is not the first time the Saudi-backed forces have attacked Mocha; however, this is by far their most intense assault on the city during this conflict.
