Last month, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and their popular committees – led by the Houthis – shocked the region after capturing the strategic city of Rabouah; this strategic city was also located in southern Saudi Arabia, creating panic amongst the Saudi-led Coalition Forces that were combatting the Republican Guard and Houthis for several months prior to this demoralizing defeat.

One month later, the Saudi-led Coalition Forces have been paralyzed in southern Saudi Arabia, as the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis pushed their way into another Saudi border city after combatting the pro-Hadi forces for several months inside the Jizan Region.

On Saturday morning in southern Saudi Arabia, the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis overran the Saudi-led Coalition Forces at the city of Najran, killing several of their fighters and seizing their military equipment before imposing full control over the Saudi Army post in the southeastern countryside of this city.

The loss of Rabouah inside Saudi Arabia last month resulted in the Saudi-led Coalition Forces having their primary supply route cutoff by the Yemeni Republican Guard and the Houthis; if they lose Najran, they will lose another border-crossing to the enemy forces, despite having the superior weapons and air support.
