The Houthi forces, backed by the Yemeni Republican Guard, continued their counter-offensive in the northeastern part of the Sanaa Governorate on Sunday, capturing a new mountaintop from the Hadi loyalists and Saudi-led Coalition.

According to local reports in Sanaa, the Houthi forces and their allies seized Jabal Al-Manara after a series of intense clashes inside the contested Nihm District on Sunday morning.

Making matters worse for the Hadi loyalists, the Houthi forces also advanced at the western axis of the Marib Governorate, where they were able to position themselves within 9km of the provincial capital.

As the battlefield moves, the key places will change with it. In the end the most important are the (big) city’s like Sanaa, Aden and Narjan.

A moltintop cannot be key for the war. It is key for the region fights there. This moltintop is very close north west from Marib. Marib is key stronghold for Haadi loyalists since it is very close to Sana – houties capital. If Mareb fall down , Yemen army will be free to attack north – Saudi and south – Aden. Dont forget that before WW2 Yemen was in the territories that “rebels” are now, Aden was britain colonie back then 😉
