The Saudi-led Coalition forces are having a bad Christmas as they have conceded several sites to the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the Houthis over the course of 48 hours in Yemen’s southern countryside.

Earlier today, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard – backed by their popular committees and the Houthis – imposed full control over Jabal Al-Shokal (Shoka Mountains) after an intense battle with the Saudi-led Coalition forces and the Hadi Loyalists in southern Yemeni province of Mareb.

Jabal Al-Shoka is situated just outside of the strategic city of Ta’iz in the Mareb Governorate; it was recently contested by the Saudi-led Coalition and the Hadi Loyalists until they sustained heavy casualties en route to a mass retreat south.

Yesterday, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the Houthis seized Jabal Al-Aswad from the Saudi-led Coalition, leaving several enemy combatants dead and their weapons confiscated by the resistance forces.
