The Saudi-led Coalition and their mercenaries launched a large-scale assault at the provincial capital of the Ta’iz Governorate on Monday, striking the Houthi defenses at the western sector of this large city in southwestern Yemen.

However, the battle did not go according to plan for the Saudi-led Coalition and their allies, as they were overwhelmed by the Houthi forces and the Yemeni Army’s 33rd and 48th brigades of the Republican Guard in western Ta’iz on late Monday morning.

According to the Yemeni “Al-Jabhah News“, over 55 soldiers and mercenaries belonging to the Saudi-led Coalition were killed during the battle for western Taiz, including several squad leaders.

The following morning, the Yemeni Army reportedly killed a Saudi mercenary commander – Ghanem Al-‘Azazi – near the Air Defense Battalion Base in Ta’iz.

The Yemeni Army has reported that several Al-Qaeda militants are partaking in this offensive to seize the strategic city of Taiz, citing that many of these terrorists have been killed by the Republican Guard and the Houthi forces.
