A series of battles between Yemen’s Houthi militia and Yemen’s legitimate government forces resulted in the death of dozens of militiamen in a number of fronts in al Jawf on Tuesday.
Among the dead was Houthi leader Moqtada al-Assar who died in a battle in the al-Matoon district.
Army sources said that vicious battles took place in the districts of al-Matoon, al-Masloob, Khab and al-Shaaf and Bart al-Anan in northern and western al-Jawf.
Meanwhile, the coalition carried out air raids targeting Houthi military strongholds in al-Masloob.
The coalition carried out several other air raids also targeting Houthi military gatherings in bases north of the Imran governorate, and in southern Saada as well as in Hodeidah, resulting in dozens of militiamen deaths.
These operations came following the UN envoy to Yemen’s five-day visit to Sanaa where he met with several Houthi leaders.
Martin Griffiths released a statement before his departure from Sanaa expressing his concern for the deteriorating humanitarian conditions and the wasting of time in negotiation a political solution.
Griffiths stressed the continuing of his aids’ efforts to convince all parties to halt battles in Hodeidah and re-open the airport in Sanaa for trade flights.
