Backed by the Arab Coalition, the Armed Forces, Al-Amalaqah Brigades and Tihama Resistance forces have managed to cut off the main road linking Zabaid to Al Tahita district in the port city of Hodeidah, forcing the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels to flee the battlegrounds.
The Joint Forces continued their advance towards Al Tahtia and Zabaid, amid major collapse within the ranks of the Houthi militias who suffered heavy losses.
The control over that main road and junction leading to Al Tahtia has resulted in cutting off the supply lines for the militias who are currently under siege in two fronts in the Red Sea Coast.
Dozens of the Houthi militia fighters fled the battlefields South of Al Tahtia and Al Jarahi following the large scale military operation by the Joint Forces.
According to local sources on the ground, the Houthi rebels fled the battlefields towards Zabaid, Bait Al Fqih and Al Hussainia, leaving behind their equipment, weapons and dead bodies after the siege.
The fighters who ran away sold their weapons and tried to avoid the checkpoints created at the Houthi -controlled areas to capture their members who are fleeing from the fighting fronts.
The sources added that 73 Houthi fighters were killed in clashes with the Joint Forces and by airstrikes launched by the Arab Coalition which targeted their positions in the Red Sea Coast.
The Coalition fighter jets also targeted the Houthi reinforcements in Mugris and other Red Sea Coast areas, leading to the destruction of military vehicles killing dozens of the Houthi militia fighters.
