The Houthi forces launched a powerful attack against the Saudi Coalition in the Jizan Region of southern Saudi Arabia on Thursday, capturing several villages after a day-long battle.

According to the Yemeni Republican Guard’s official Twitter account, the Houthi forces managed to capture the villages of Al-Qarn and Dafineh after overrunning the Saudi Army’s defenses in the Al-Khube District on Thursday.

Following the capture of Al-Qarn and Dafineh, the Houthi forces advanced east of the Bahteet Military Base, seizing several small villages that were under the Saudi Army’s control.

As a result of Thursday’s assault in the Jizan Region, the Houthi forces destroyed two Abrams Tanks and several armored vehicles that were mounted with machine guns.
