In Video: Houthis Capture Mountain Chain Near Saudi Border

The Houthis (Ansar Allah) have recaptured the al-Mutabiq mountain chain on the border with the southern Saudi province of Najran from Saudi-backed forces.


On January 24, the Yemeni group released footage of its large-scale attack on the mountain chain. The footage shows Houthi fighters advancing in the mountain chain area as they clash with Saudi-led coalition proxies.


During the attack, the Houthis destroyed several vehicles of Saudi-backed forces with anti-tank guided missiles, rocket-propelled grenades and recoilless rifles.

Saudi-backed forces imposed control of the al-Mutabiq mountain chain last December following a fierce battle with the Houthis. Now, the mountain chain is once again under the Yemeni group control.


The Houthis’ attack on al-Mutabiq highlights the Saudi-led coalition’s failure to secure the border between Saudi Arabia and Yemen.


While the Saudi-led coalition bombs Yemen on a daily basis, its proxies have been failing to make any progress on the ground. The coalition’s airstrikes are only leading to more escalation.
