Fighting continues. Hajur tribes capture 25 Houthis and coalition fighters launch seven raids


Fighting continues between al-Houthi militants and Hajur tribesmen in the district of Kushar in the northwestern province of Hajjah, while the Saudi-led Arab coalition fighters are intensifying their air raids on Houthi positions.

A field source told Al-Masdar  online that the fighter jets launched seven sporadic raids on the Houthi sites, which impose a siege on the tribal men in the Directorate.

According to the source, the raids targeted the positions, gatherings, and reinforcements of the militants, resulting in scores of dead and wounded, as well as the destruction of an armored vehicle and a mortar cannon.

He noted that tribesmen are desperate to defend their positions under the Houthis ' attempts to achieve any breakthrough in the region, and the fiercest battles have been raging for three days in the Al-Obaisa area.

The tribes, however, moved the battle from the defense to the attack and in the past two days took control of the village and al-Qyyam mountain, east of the district of Kushar, after scores of Houthis were killed and wounded.

Hajur tribesmen also captured more than 25 Houthi gunmen and a military vehicle of BMB type.
