Violent battles have continued in the Yemeni border province of Al-Jawf with Saudi Arabia for several weeks between the forces of the Yemeni internationally recognized government and the Ansar Allah group (Houthis) without any success in achieving effective control on the ground.
The government forces said Thursday evening that they had killed and wounded a number of Ansar Allah group (Houthis) in violent clashes in Al-Jawf governorate, northern Yemen.
"The violent confrontations took place between the army and the Houthis in the Aqaba front, the Ham mountain range, and the Qweihesh front, southwest of Al-Jawf," the media of the 101st Infantry Brigade, affiliated with the government forces, said on its Facebook page.
The brigade's media 101 indicated that "the government forces managed to damage the Houthi mechanisms and patrols on the Aqaba and Ham fronts."
It confirmed, "More than 19 Houthi elements were killed and wounded during the confrontations, including leaders, in addition to significant losses of equipment."
The Aden-based Yemeni news agency (Saba) said that government forces inflicted human and material losses on the Ansar Allah group (Houthis) in a large-scale attack on sites in the Jabhat Al-Safraa and Al-Mahzamat southwest of Al-Jawf.
In conjunction with the battles on the Al-Safeaa fronts, the Air Force of the Saudi-led Arab Coalition launched air strikes on vehicles and gatherings of the Ansar Allah group (Houthis) in the fronts of Al-Ghail, Al-Mahzamat, and Jarashab in Al-Jawf.
