Cautious calm in Hajur after violent night battles and the coalition did not bomb the Houthi sites


The Directorate of “Kasher” in the northwestern province of Hajjah is cautiously calm on Monday, after a night of fierce fighting between tribesmen and militants of the Houthi group, which resulted in the deaths of the latter.

The Al-Masdar online correspondent said that last night's battles began with the Houthis attempting to attack tribesmen from the al-Darb and Rayban areas, but the tribesmen repelled the attack, and heavy machine guns continued to be fired until morning.

A number of Houthis were killed and wounded, he added.

He noted that the Houthis tried to penetrate Hajur tribes from the south, and started firing at a number of positions in the direction of the Aflah al-Sham directorate, but the tribesmen were ready.

According to our correspondent, tribesmen continued to arrive in the area to support Hajur tribes, including gunmen who had joined the al-Houthi group earlier, but who defected from the group to support their tribe.

On the one hand, the Houthis continue to rally hundreds of their gunmen with light and heavy weapons in Amran province, in preparation for progress in the Directorate of Kasher, and end the resistance of Hajur tribes, one of the fiercest tribes in Yemen.

Our correspondent denied that coalition fighters had raided al-Houthi positions in the vicinity of Kasher Directorate since the tension between the two sides began, contrary to al-Arabiya, which earlier reported that the coalition had raided the Houthi positions.

He said that during the past few hours the Houthis had launched artillery shelling of the Al-Obaisa area, which could herald a major attack on the Houthis in the coming hours if the al-Houthi siege on the Directorate continues.
