Saudi-led Coalition Captures New Positions South Of Al-Hudaydah Airport (Map, Video)

Click to see full-size map, By ISW News

On June 14, the Saudi-led coalition and its Yemeni proxies resumed their advance towards the city of al-Hudaydah along the western Yemeni coast and captured several key positions in the district of al-Durayhimi and the area of al-Nikheila, according to Sky News Arabia TV. Currently, coalition forces are only 2km away from the airport of al-Hudaydah.

Sky News Arabia said that warplanes of the Saudi-led coalition supported the ground attack on al-Hudaydah and carried out a series of airstrikes on the positions and vehicles of the Houthis inside the city and around it.

From its side, the Yemeni Missiles Force [loyal to the Houthis] announced that it had launched a Qaher-2M ballistic missile at a gathering of Saudi-led coalition troops along the western coast of Yemen. However, no hit was reported by pro-coalition sources.

The Saudi-led coalition and its proxies launched a new offensive on al-Hudaydah on June 13. So far, the coalition faced very limited resistance from the remaining fighters of the Houthis south of the city. This situation may change when coalition troops reach the urban areas inside al-Hudaydah.

    Limited opposition by Houthis so far…

    Sounds familiar. Within the grand halls of their newly christened HQ, Ronald McDonald’s Playhouse, Saudi military planners are at it again. Saudi coalition advances up narrow corridor despite not securing their right flank where Houthis can easily hide in mountainess terrain. Either the Houthis have been weakened sufficiently to be unable to threaten the Saudi exposed supply lines or, the Saudis are repeating the same mistake. History tells us it is the latter – especially given the Saudi’s fantasy claim the attack is from multiple directions.

    Keep repeating the same mistake and hope for a different outcome. Good luck with that.

      Iran would supply the Human defenders of Yemen with weapons that could exterminate the Saudis and their proxies, but the foul zionist appeaser Putin voted at the UNSC to make this IMPOSSIBLE. Putin joined with the other demonic filth of the UNSC to rule that weapon sales to Yemen were illegal, and weapon sales to Saudi Arabia were to be maximised at all costs.

      If Iran is caught openly helping the defenders of Yemen, Putin has agreed to allow this to be a good enough cause for Trump to bomb Iran.

      You think zionist appeaser Putin is on the side of Greater Humanity- think again.

        I have not found any articles in support of what you say. Can you provide some sources?

        • FlorianGeyer

          Starlights sources are always covered in Zionist shit. :)

        IRAN cannot transport the weapons there, thru the US-Navy task-force and NATO-ships in the GULF.
        THE CHINESE COULD DO IT..

  • Harvey Swinestein

    Houthis are using a classic defense tactic: allow the invader to capture ground, then move in like a sharp knife to cut their supply routes, while inflicting heavy casualties on them in terms of men and equipment

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      Lie, the Saudis already have 2/3rd of Yemen already.
      The Houthis are fighting tooth and nail to defend every inch of their beloved home lands.
      The Saudis swoop in like the British did to indigenous European tribes to conquer them and wipe out as many as they can.

      • Harvey Swinestein

        I was talking about the recent tactics along the western coast peanut. It is obvious to anyone that has a shred of military tactical knowledge. The same tactic was used in Vietnam and Afghanistan: allow the enemy to advance along a narrow front, stretch out his supply lines, then cut them at their weakest point . .

      • S Melanson

        If you have been reading the news, you would also know that the coalition has been trying to take the port for years but without success. I suppose then that the ‘swoop’ is being done in slow motion, sorta like when one is near a black hole.

  • potcracker2588

    limited opposition…lol well ok then the 75+killed and 14 vehicles the houthis destroyed 2 days ago south of airport aint so bad lol
    the saudi pricks also never show their casualties from the ballistic missiles that get fired at them, and this narrow strip south of hudayda is perfect for such missile attacks, and there is definetly no anti-missile system around in that place.
    anyway…even with the capture of the port, the invading jew slave forces cant ever win/beat the houthis, this area around hudayda is an open area, great for air support, and on one side the sea too.the houthiss heartland, is the exact opposite…..mountains over mountains, valley next to valley, caves in the + thousands….makes air support practically worthless up there + no heavy military hardware is possible ie. tanks , artillery…….so in the end the invading jew slaves can conquer the south, the west…but up north and in the center is a no go win scenario for invading forces(been so for a thousand years, similar to afghanistan)…..

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      If the houthis lose the airport it does not make much of a difference how many mercenaries from SA they kill dont you think so?

      • S Melanson

        Latest reports are the offensive is basically a failure. See if this changes over next couple of days but the coalition has failed to reach any significant objective and the attempted amphibious landing was repelled – quite easily it seems, by two anti-ship missiles (Saudis reported four marine casualties the supports Houthi claims of a direct hit).

        Obviously there was little to no coordination with artillery or Air Force revealing weakness in conducting a combined arms operation. Another problem is advance on a narrow front with high terrain in Houthi hands and exposed supply lines – advantages in weaponry, troop numbers etc. are greatly reduced in these circumstances. Even elite troops would have a tough go of a situation like this.

    The future looks bleak for all of the ME.
    Thank you Russia for doing nothing, except supporting your Zionist allies.
    Israeli fighter jets are caring out over 1/5th of all bombing runs in Yemen.
    Israel bombs Damascus to.
    Make no mistake Russia, for Israel will be involved in regime change in Russia soon.
    Russia failed to identify the nemesis to the Russian people.
    And for lack of good foresight, you will perish.

        Yours is one of the most important comments ever posted on South Front.
        More people and Russians specifically should stop believing fantasy about history and get in touch with reality.
        Then Russia would be truly awakened.
        Thank you for your post, you should repost it again in the future for more people to awaken.

    The alternative is very grim. As described by Israeli journalist Gideon Levy, “The
    truth is that Israel is well prepared to massacre hundreds and
    thousands, and to expel tens of thousands. Nothing will stop it. This is
    the end of conscience, the show of morality is over. The last few days’
    events have proved it decisively. The tracks have been laid, the
    infrastructure for the horror has been cast. Dozens of years of
    brainwashing, demonization and dehumanization have borne fruit. The
    alliance between the politicians and the media to suppress reality and
    deny it has succeeded. Israel is set to commit horrors. Nobody will
    stand in its way any longer. Not from within or from without.” and thats from an israeli, could´nt say it any better
