On May 20, the Houthi-appointed Governor of Ma’rib province in central Yemen, Ali Muhammad Toaiman, condemned a recent attack on a fuel market in al-Arqain area.


The market, which hosted dozens of tankers, was set ablaze a day earlier after clashes between Saudi-backed forces and local tribesmen. In a statement to the pro-Houthis Saba News Agency, Toamian claimed that it was the Saudi-backed forces which targeted the market.



“The aggression militants shelled with tanks and artillery the areas of Abidah tribe, targeting a position containing 30 tankers loaded with gas and fuel. The targeting led to the burning of the tankers and serious damage to the properties of the citizen,” the Toaiman said.


The Houthis’ governor pointed out that Saudi-backed forces are provoking the tribes of Ma’rib, restricting freedoms, stirring up problems, looting property and destroying equipment to serve their interests.

While Toaiman held the Saudi-led coalition responsible for the incident, a source in the Saudi-backed wing of the Yemen military claimed that fighters from Abidah tribe were behind the attack on the fuel market in al-Arqain.


The Houthis have been leading a large-scale offensive against Saudi-backed forces in Ma’rib for well over two months now.


The Yemen group is approaching local fighters and tribesman in Ma’rib in order to boost its offensive. Meanwhile, Saudi-backed forces are losing the support of the locals, like the Abidah tribe.
