BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – The Saudi Coalition launched a new offensive along the Yemeni border, yesterday, targeting a district controlled by the Houthi forces in the Hajjah Governorate.
Backed by Hajour tribesmen, the Saudi Coalition stormed the Houthi defenses inside the Mustaba District on Wednesday.
According to local reports, the Saudi Coalition was able to make a small advance in the Mustaba District before their warplanes began to heavily bombard the Houthi defenses.
On Thursday, the Saudi Coalition made another push to capture the Mustaba District; however, they were reportedly repelled by the Houthi troops in the area.
With a fragile ceasefire taking place inside the Hodeidah Governorate, most of the fighting in Yemen has turned to the Saudi border, where the Houthi forces and pro-government troops continue to trade attacks.
