A field source told Al Arabiya that the operations cell was used by the militias to carry out their military operations and to communicate with their forces on battlefronts. It was also used as a location for Houthi leaders and commanders to hold meetings. The cell is connected to a mountain cave, and consists of five rooms, with each room used to carry out a certain task.

A Yemeni field military source confirmed that the Yemeni forces, supported by coalition air forces, managed to control the Wadi al-Bou Jabara valley after tense battles against the Houthis. This pushed the army closer to reaching the Kataf district, which is about 13 kilometers away from the valley.
