DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:30 P.M.) – Saudi jets dropped thousands of leaflets over Hudaydah on Wednesday, warning civilians not to cooperate with Houthi-led troops and instead to help the Aden-based government with restoring the embattled country under its control.

A copy of leaflets dropped on the provincial capital reads:

“Dear family members in Hudaydah. The control of Houthi militias over the port city of Hudaydah will only increase famine and prevent the arrival of aid and medicine to the Yemeni people. Join our legitimate forces for the stability of Yemen and its people.”

With Saudi Arabia reportedly amassing a naval flotilla on the Red Sea to capture Hudaydah, the Sana’a government issued a decree on Tuesday appointing Republican Guard commander Yousef Al-Madani to draw up plans for the defense of the Hajjah and Hudaydah regions.

He was also promoted to Major General, according to newly employed Al-Masdar News field correspondent Naseh Shaker.

Hudaydah province is entirely under the control of the Sana’a based government which is for the most part composed of elements of the predominately Shi’ite Houthi tribe.

I feel that C802 coastal batteries are likely to be deployed, dinghies with ATGMs too.
