BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The Houthi forces launched a new offensive in central Yemen on Wednesday, targeting the pro-Saudi Yemeni Army’s positions inside the Qaniyah District of Al-Bayda.
Backed by heavy artillery and missiles, the Houthi forces began their attack by storming the Yemeni Army’s positions at the hills in the Qaniyah District.
According to the official media wing of the Houthi forces, their troops managed to capture at least two hilltops in Qaniyah, while also inflicting heavy losses within the ranks of the Yemeni Army.
The Houthi forces are now trying to push deeper into Qaniyah to capture the remaining sites under the control of the Yemeni Army.
In response to the Houthi offensive, the Arab Coalition has begun heavily bombarding their positions in the Al-Bayda Governorate.
