1- Turning back the Belharith tribe to agreement with Ansar Allah and allowing the Saudi coalition forces to Usaylan.
2- Lack of access of Ansar Allah to defense equipment and weapons.
3- Heavy bombing of Saudi coalition Warplanes.
4- Strengthening the ground forces of the Saudi coalition by using the forces of Amaliqah.
