On Friday morning in the Hajjah Governorate of northern Yemen, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and Houthi Forces devastated the Saudi-led Coalition fighters that were tasked to protect the Midi District, killing scores of them in the process of their advance towards the coast.

Video footage from the battle displaced scores of dead Saudi Army soldiers spread across the Midi District, as the Houthi Forces walk over the territory they reclaimed from the Coalition fighters on Friday morning.

In addition to killing scores of Coalition fighters, the Houthi Forces also captured a number of Saudi Army soldiers, with one of them being interviewed in the video.

The Saudi-led Coalition captured the Midi District of the Hajjah Governorate in January during their large-scale counter-offensive in northern Yemen.

Now, the Houthi Forces and the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard are on the offensive, recapturing large swathes of territory from Saudi-led Coalition along the Midi coast near the Saudi-Yemeni border. Video footage (graphic):
