Latest Military Situation of Yemen, 17 September 2021 (Map Update)
During the last six months, most of the clashes between Ansar Allah and the Saudi coalition have been concentrated on the fronts of the provinces of Marib, Al-Baydha, al-Jawf, Taiz and Saadah.
In general, the lines of conflict on the Mairb, Al-Jawf, Saadah and Taiz fronts have not changed much compared to the last six months. On these fronts, some areas, such as Dash al-Haqan and Hamat al-Hamra in the west of Marb or Shahla mountain in the east of al-Jawf and al-Kadhah in the west of Taiz, have been handed over several times between sides and no serious change in the lines has taken place.
In the fronts of al-Baydha province, following a series of Ansar Allah operations under the name of “Al-Nasr Al-Mobin“, large parts of the districts of al-Zaher, al-Sawmaah, Nate’, Nu’man, etc. were liberated, and Ansar Allah operations are currently continuing in these areas.
According to Ansar Allah’s statement regarding Operation Marib, it seems that the liberation of Marib has gone beyond Ansar Allah’s goals and priorities, and additional operations in al-Baydha province and several other points are on the agenda.
Hit and run operations are taking place on other fronts, and the Saudi coalition is powerless and unwilling to advance in Yemen. As a result, it can be said that the war for the Saudi coalition is getting closer to a dead end, and we have to wait and see whether Ansar Allah, with its step-by-step progress, can force the Saudi coalition to accept defeat in the negotiations or not.
