Field sources reported, today, Wednesday, that the Houthi rebels managed to take control of the “Umm Reesh” camp and the areas of “Naseer”, “Hra” and “Al-Najad” west of Al-Juba district, Marib governorate; Which is very dangerous for the city.
The sources told Al-Mashhad Al-Yemeni that the Houthi militia’s control of the Umm Rish and Naseer areas would enable it to completely bypass the Juba district, which means that the Murad Mountains will automatically fall into the hands of the Houthi rebels.
The sources indicated that the “Umm Reesh” camp fell after the Houthis launched intensive attacks with more than 18 human coordinators, on the Alfa fronts in the Juba and Mala’a districts in the Harib district, south of the governorate.
The sources noted that the militia is currently imposing its control on the first front, which was located in the Alfa area on the borders of the Juba district from the direction of the districts of Rahba, Mahlia, Qania and the road linking the governorates of Marib, Al-Bayda, Dhamar and Sana’a, while the second front is currently inside the district of Al-Juba from the south direction and adjacent to the Harib district Ma’rib and Bayhan in Shabwa.
This comes after the militia tightened its control over the last strategic location where the Yemeni army forces and tribes were stationed in the Mala’a Harib area.
The militia was able to control the camp after a large number of its members were killed, while more than 28 fighters from the army and tribes were martyred, and dozens were wounded.
During the past few days, the Houthi militia pushed hundreds of fighters in large waves to launch violent and continuous attacks on the positions of the tribesmen.
