Massive Saudi offensive in northern Yemen turns disastrous: 378 killed

On Monday, the Saudi-led Coalition – backed by the Hadi loyalists – launched a massive offensive in northern Yemen, targeting the Houthi-controlled district of Midi near the Saudi border-crossing. However, the offensive was over-hyped by the Saudi-state media and failed to yield any significant gains, despite having air supremacy and the superior firepower against the poorly-armed Houthi fighters and Yemeni Republican Guard. According to the Yemeni news channel “Al-Jabah“, 378 Saudi-led Coalition fighters were killed over the last 48 hours; this report was confirmed by the Yemeni Army’s spokesperson.
