Yemen: Latest Updates on Marib front, 13 January 2021
ISWNews Analysis Group: The Saudi-led forces with the help of Murad tribes launched an operation against the positions of Ansar Allah in the districts of Rahba and Jabal Murad.
The Saudi-led forces advanced through the areas of Oshal, Rahum and al-Manaqel to the Najd al-Majma’ah area, but according to the released footages, the Saudi-led forces faced heavy resistance by Ansar Allah and the attacks were repulsed.
As usual, Saudi coalition warplanes bombed the southern fronts of Marib 12 times in the past 48 hours, providing air support for the Saudi-led forces on the ground.
However, as long as Araftan mountain and Najd al-Majma’ah are under Ansar Allah control, Saudi coalition attacks can be easily repulsed, so it can be said that the situation in the south of Marib province is under Ansar Allah control and the possible fall of these areas can be reversed by Ansar Allah limited attacks.
