Today, Friday, the Yemeni army said that its forces, backed by the Giants Brigades and the Popular Resistance, had achieved great victories over the Houthis on various battle fronts in the Ma’rib Governorate, with direct support from the coalition’s aviation to support legitimacy.
The media center of the Yemeni armed forces stated that the army and the popular resistance launched a surprise attack on Friday morning, “during which they managed to liberate strategic sites in the northwestern front of Marib,” adding that dozens of Houthis were killed or wounded, while a number of elements were arrested.
The media center confirmed the restoration of control over large areas in several axes south of Marib, “amid the collapse and great human and material losses in the ranks of the Iranian Houthi militia.”
He added that the coalition warplanes launched a series of air raids targeting Houthi fortifications, gatherings and reinforcements in separate locations south of Marib, stressing that they caused “heavy losses in lives and equipment.”
