 The joint southern forces launched a large-scale offensive in the very early hours of Sunday, on Houthi gatherings and positions in al-Zubairiyat, Salim, Bagah, Batar and al-Joub camp in the western and southwestern parts of Qataba district, north of al-Dhale.

The operation was preceded by a heavy shelling in which the joint southern forces used artillery, Katyusha and tanks to pave the way for direct attack with medium and light weapons with a view to storming the Houthi-held positions.

Military field sources reported that the southern forces delivered painful blows to the Iran-backed Houthi militia, inflicting heavy human and material loses on them, adding that black smoke could be seen billowing from the Houthi locations as their vehicles were rushing to take killed and injured fighters.
