The Houthi coup militia opened, on Monday evening, a new front against the government forces in Al-Dhalea Governorate (southern Yemen).
During the past hours, the Houthi militia launched a large-scale attack with heavy weapons on government forces in the “Sabirah al-Jab” sector.
The military spokesman for the Southern Transitional Council, Muhammad al-Naqib, said that the military units stationed in the Sabira-al-Jib sector had thwarted an attack launched by the Houthi militia half an hour ago.
Al-Naqeeb added that the Houthi militia used various types of weapons in the attack, stressing that the government forces were able to confront the attack.
The military spokesman for the Transitional Council confirmed that the government forces thwarted the attack and inflicted human losses on the Houthi militias, amid confrontations that lasted about an hour and a half.
