A Yemeni government source told Agence France-Presse that “at least 70 fighters were killed, including 22 government soldiers, and dozens of both sides were wounded in new confrontations during the past 48 hours.”
The official stated that the rebels “launched a violent attack accompanied by tanks and vehicles at the Ksara front, and the strong attack was repelled with the support of the coalition aircraft.”
For their part, the Houthis spoke on their Al Masirah channel about 38 airstrikes launched by the coalition in several locations in the Marib Governorate.
It is rare for the Houthi rebels to announce their losses.
