BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:10 P.M.) – Thousands of Saudi Coalition fighters are on their way to the Yemen’s Hodeidah Governorate for what is expected to be their largest offensive of the year.

Citing a Yemeni government official, the AFP News Agency reported that the Saudi Coalition sent more than 10,000 troops towards the Hodeidah Governorate for a new offensive against the Houthi forces (var. Ansarallah Movement).

The Saudi Coalition reportedly deployed these reinforcements to the Red Sea coast as they prepare to launch this large-scale offensive in the coming days.

The Yemeni official told the AFP that forces from Sudan and Saudi Coalition had already moved into position to strike the Houthi positions around the provincial capital.

Since January of this year, the Saudi Coalition has launched two major offensives to capture the Hodeidah province from the Houthi forces.

However, despite some early gains, the Saudi Coalition troops have been unable to penetrate the Houthi defenses at the Hodeidah Airport and provincial capital.

The Hodeidah province is the location of the last major port under Houthi control; if lost, northern Yemen will effectively be under an air, land, and sea siege.

We’ll see how that goes. Probably another failure just like every other ridiculous Saudi project under MBS.
