BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:55 A.M.) – The Saudi Coalition troops launched a big assault inside the Sa’ada Governorate of northern Yemen last night, scoring a significant advance inside this Houthi provincial stronghold.
According to pro-Saudi media, the Coalition troops managed to infiltrate the Houthi defenses at the Bqaim District of northern Sa’ada, resulting in the capture of several areas near the Saudi Arabian border.
The Saudi Coalition was able to make this advance on Sunday after their warplanes repeatedly hammered the Houthi defenses in the Baqim District of Sa’ada, ultimately forcing them to abandon several points near the border.
This latest advance by the Saudi Coalition troops in northern Sa’ada comes at the same time the Ansarallah Movement (var. Houthi Movement) and government delegations hold peace talks in Sweden.
While these Yemeni peace talks continue in Sweden, the Saudi Coalition has taken the offensive in several parts of the country, including the provincial capital of the Hodeidah Governorate.
According to local activists in Hodeidah, the Saudi Coalition troops, alongside the Southern Resistance Army and Yemeni Republican Guard, stormed the Houthi defenses in the eastern and southern parts of the provincial capital.
