Houthis attack the sites of the Hajur tribes in Kasher and fierce battles between the two sides


Militants of the al-Houthi group on Saturday evening launched a fierce attack on Hajur tribesmen in the district of Kasher in the northwestern province of Hajja, after days of tension between the two sides and the militant group's attempt to storm the directorate.

Local sources in the field told Al-Masdar online that the Houthis began their attack on tribesmen in the Qaryat area, and carried out intensive shelling of cannons and heavy machine guns, while fierce battles erupted between the two sides.

The sources added that the Houthis launched an attack after a large number of their gunmen in Jabal al-Shahi and Sharfani to control them, but the tribesmen responded to the attack.

He noted that the fighting between the militants and the tribes continued to the moment in the two mountains.

The Houthis had pre-empted the attack with a threat to the tribes to allow them to control the area, set up checkpoints and allow them to take control of the highway, and if they did not, they would storm the directorate's villages with heavy weaponry.
