The commander of the National Resistance, Brigadier Tariq Saleh, commented on the heroic steadfastness that the sons of Al-Abdiyyah in the Ma’rib governorate control in the face of the terrorist attack carried out by the Houthi coup group, in addition to the inhumane siege imposed on it by the militia nearly a week ago.
Brigadier-General Tariq said, “We cherish slavery and we cherish every Ma’rib as it fights the Iranian Imami priesthood shobra by shobar,” noting that in all religions and customs, heroism is not only linked to victory, but to adherence to the cause and patience when adversity and absolute belief that victory is coming no matter how much you force the transgressor.
The leader of the National Resistance stressed that “national battles are not defeated by the aggressor’s weapon, no matter how much blood is shed.”
It is worth noting that the Houthi militia continues its extensive attacks with the aim of controlling and advancing towards the Al-Jawbah district in Marib, adjacent to the city, the capital of the governorate, in conjunction with the continuation of the siege imposed on the Al-Abdiya district for more than 20 days.
Where the Houthi militia was able to control new sites between Harib and Al-Juba, while continuing its attacks to storm Al-Abdiyyah, but without achieving significant progress in it.
The Houthi militia had isolated the Abdiya district by imposing a suffocating siege on it for more than twenty days, after it took control of the Harib district, since its last port, and moved to control the Juba district.
During the past weeks, the army was able to repel the Houthi attempts to advance towards Al-Juba, but these attempts are still continuing amid the great courage of the national army and the tribesmen.
Observers said that the Houthi strategy is based on imposing a siege on the cities of Jabal Murad and Rahabah, with the continued Houthi advance and pressure towards the city, the capital of the governorate, so that it becomes difficult to break the siege on them, especially since the two directorates are bordered by Harib from the east, which was controlled by the Houthis and became a depth for the militia, and from the south the Mahlia Marib Rabie and al-Qurashiya were born in al-Bayda, the latter of which was recently completed by the militia, and thus the two districts might fall without a fight unless the army launched a large-scale attack.
