Latest updates on Marib, 9 October 2021
ISWNews Analysis Group: Ansar Allah has resumed its attacks to liberate the al-Abdiyah district center in the south of Marib province.
As Ansar Allah’s talks with opposition tribes in al-Abdiyah district failed, Ansar Allah attacks on al-Abdiyah district center began on October 9, and a number of Bani Abd areas were liberated from the control of tribes and Mansour Hadi forces. Also in today’s clashes, “Sheikh Yasser al-Akb al-Omari”, one of the main commanders of Mansour Hadi’s forces in al-Abdiyah front, was killed.
Ansar Allah had offered Mansour Hadi and other opposition forces several safe routes to get out of al-Abdiyah in talks, but they did not accept Ansar Allah’s offer.
Clashes continue on the al-Jubah front, and Ansar Allah has managed to advance to the outskirts of Waset village, but control of the area is still in the hands of Saudi-led forces, and clashes continue.
On the western front of Marib province, there has been no significant change in the lines, and the Saudi coalition airstrikes to stop Ansar Allah attacks continues. In this regard, the Saudi coalition warplanes bombed al-Juba district 14 times, Abdiyah district 14 times and Sarwah district 16 times in Marib province in the last 48 hours.
