Fighting erupts in Taiz after Saudi troops attack the Houthi forces
The Saudi Army and their allies from the Arab Coalition carried out an unprovoked attack against the Houthi forces in the city of Ta’iz, resulting in a violent battle that lasted for nearly three hours on Wednesday.
In addition to the street fights taking place, the Saudi Air Force launched a number of airstrikes along Yemeni coast, hitting several areas under the control of the Houthi forces and the Yemeni Republican Guard. Saudi Arabia and the Houthi leadership are set to meet in Kuwait later this week in order to begin the U.N. sponsored peace talks. However, Saudi Arabia’s repeated ceasefire violations have infuriated the Houthi leadership, who are now threatening to retaliate if these attacks do not stop.
