At daybreak on Wednesday, coalition airstrikes on militia positions east of Taiz Governorate, southern Yemen, killed and wounded dozens of Houthis.
According to Taiz spokesman Abdul Basit al-Bahr, the coalition fighters targeted the Houthi militia’s airbase in Jabal Uman, 15 missile bases in Jabal Al-Ula, the Sharman Junction, the vicinity of Taiz Airport, Tariq Air Base, and a training and mobilization camp in the city of Al-Saleh east of Taiz with ten raids.
Al-Bahr reportedly stated that the raids were highly accurate in their targeting of Houthi sites and that they damaged planning and operations centers as well as a room for managing fights and missile strikes. He added that it is likely that Iranian experts were killed in Jabal Uman and Tariq Air Base.
“The Houthi militia has suffered severe human casualties, including large and field leaders, as well as the destruction of vehicles, tanks, and military staff,” he continued.
The Yemeni army and popular resistance, on the other hand, began a large-scale offensive on Houthi militia positions in the Al-Kasara front, west of Ma’rib Governorate in the north of the nation, on Wednesday.
According to the Yemeni news agency “Saba,” a military source told the Media Center of the Armed Forces that the attack led to the militia’s defeat from several locations where it was holed up, inflicting heavy losses in lives and equipment, while the army and popular resistance recovered light and medium weapons and large quantities of ammunition.
On the same front, coalition airplanes attacked Houthi gatherings, killing all those onboard and causing severe human and material losses.
