Some sources close to Ansar Allah claimed the liberation of al-Haydh and Shahla mountains on the eastern part of al-Maraziq and the liberation of the villages of Hazma al-Zaba’ and Abu Sarah south of Raghwan district, as well as advances in the west of Marib, but so far it has not been confirmed by our field sources.
