On February 5, the Houthis (Ansar Allah) revealed the human and material losses which were inflicted on the Saudi-led coalition during January.
In a statement, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Houthis, said that 1,283 personnel of the Saudi-led coalition, including 74 Saudi soldiers and 75 Sudanese soldiers, were either killed or injured last month.
The Houthis spokesman went on to claim that six unmanned aerial vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition were shot down in January.
“The Armed Force managed to destroy or damage 92 armoured and military vehicles during January,” Brig. Gen. Sari added.
The Saudi-led coalition does not acknowledge any of its losses in Yemen. Saudi and Sudanese casualties are usually reported by activists on social media.
So far, the Saudi-led coalition has failed to achieve most of the objectives it first declared five years ago. The Houthis are still in control of the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, and most of the border line with the Kingdom.
A day earlier, US President Joe Biden ceased support for Saudi-led military operations in Yemen and halted arms sells to the Kingdom. Despite these measures, military operations continue in the war-torn country.
