Ten coalition armored vehicles that have been shelling the Yemeni people for more than six months were destroyed.
The national military and the Committees also fought off an attack by the armed mercenaries and the attacking forces who were trying to sneak into “Hommat al-Masariya” area in Ma’rib province under heavy fire cover by the Saudi-US aggression forces who used internationall-forbidden cluster bombs.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 188 days now to restore power to fugitive president Abed Rabbu Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,230 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
