BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:50 A.M.) – The Saudi Coalition sent a large number of reinforcements from the Sudanese Army to the Hodeidah front this past weekend, the group announced on Sunday.

“The aim of the arrived Sudanese servicemen will be to reinforce troops already deployed there in order to fully liberate the territories which remain under the Houthis’ control,” the Saudi Coalition stated on Sunday.

The Saudi Coalition has been attempting to capture the strategic Hodeidah Port in western Yemen for several months now; however, they have been unable to penetrate the defenses of the Houthis.

Should the Houthis lose the Hodeidah Port to the Saudi Coalition, they will be effectively under a permanent land, sea, and air siege.

Actually, they switched strategy for several months now : they’re pushing to surround the city, the N3 road to Sa’ana is already cut. Moreover, there are no areas under constant push. Obviously, the same kind of low-intensity warfare option that was/is already in use in Iraq/Syria is at work here too. They’re bleeding the Iran-backed rebels through multiple wounds. Now they’re more acting in the Sa’adah governorate after having made a push in the Hajjah governorate. Typical from attacks on multiple fronts, except their really really slow, it’s even a bit strange since both KSA and UAE have really huge… Read more »

“…Money talks…
Note : al-Basri has ICP international warrants on his a$$ for war-crimes…..”
