Houthis Recapture Key Area Along Western Yemen Coast

On June 9, Houthi fighters launched a new attack on several positions of the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies along the western Yemeni coast in the province of al-Hudaydah and captured the key area of al-Jah, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV.

Yemeni sources claimed that the Houthis cut off a new supply line of the Saudi-led coalition along the western Yemeni coast as a result of this attack. However, these claims still have to be confirmed.The Houthis media wing said that Houthi fighters killed 50 Yemeni fighters loyal to Saudi-backed Yemeni president, Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, and captured many others during the successful attack. Moreover, the Houthis destroyed several vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition.

The Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies captured al-Jah in a rapid attack on May 26. Back then, the attack was led by Brigadier General Tariq Mohammed Saleh of the Yemeni Republican Guard.

Meanwhile, the UAE-based Sky News Arabia TV reported that Saudi-led coalition warplanes carried out a new series of airstrikes on several positions and vehicles of the Houthis around the coastal city of al-Hudaydah. Many Houthi fighters were killed and injured in these airstrikes, according to the source.

The Saudi-led coalition will likely launch a fresh attack along the western Yemeni coast in the upcoming days in order to secure its positions there and pressure the remaining fighters of the Houthis in the city of al-Hudaydah.
