On Wednesday morning, the Saudi Royal Army – backed by the Arab Coalition – launched a large-scale offensive to recapture the strategic border-city of Rabu’ah from the Houthi forces and the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard.

However, once again, their offensive did not go as planned; instead, the Saudi Royal Army and their allies were forced to abruptly retreat after sustaining significant casualties near the border-city of Rabu’ah.

According to military sources in Sanaa, the Saudi Army and their allies lost 3 armored vehicles and 2 dozen soldiers during their failed bid to recapture Rabu’ah from the Houthis and Yemeni Army; this is the 3rd time in 4 weeks that they have failed to recapture this city.
