New battles erupted between the Yemeni army and the Houthi rebels in Al-Jawf Governorate, today, Wednesday, hours after the Arab coalition issued a stern warning.
Field sources told “The Yemeni Scene” that the army’s artillery bombed the Houthi militia’s sites and gatherings, east of the city of Al-Hazm, and inflicted heavy losses on it in equipment and lives.
She indicated that the battles are still continuing, after the collapse of the Houthis.
This comes after dozens of Houthi militia were killed and wounded by artillery shelling of the army forces on various fighting fronts, south of the neighboring Marib Governorate.
The Arab coalition had announced that it had thwarted two “imminent attacks” by the Houthis in the southern Red Sea.
The coalition confirmed, according to the official Saudi Press Agency, the destruction of two booby-trapped boats belonging to the Houthis and “thwarting the implementation of two imminent attacks,” blaming the Houthis for violating the agreement concluded in 2018 in Sweden by “launching hostile operations” from Hodeidah Governorate.
The coalition warned of the Houthis’ continuing to “threaten the shipping lines and global trade in the Bab al-Mandab strait and the southern Red Sea.”
