Latest updates on Shabwa fronts, 2 January 2022
ISWNews Analysis Group: Clashes between Ansar Allah and the Saudi-led forces continue in the western fronts of Shabwa province in the Usaylan district.
According to the latest news from the western front of Shabwa province, the attack of the Amaliqah forces on the al-Safra, Areh and Wadi Markhah fronts has met with Ansar Allah resistance, and clashes continue in these areas.
Amaliqah forces also entered the city of Usaylan in an agreement with the Belharith tribes and attacked Ansar Allah positions in the villages south of Usaylan.
It should be noted that after the withdrawal of the Saudi coalition from the city of Usaylan on September 20, the control of this city fell into the hands of the Belharith tribes. Ansar Allah also handed over control of these areas to the Belharith tribes through an agreement with the elders of region. Therefore, the claim that Ansar Allah withdrew from Usaylan is not true, because Ansar Allah did not enter this city from the beginning.
