Military media shows Sanaa forces shelling coalition forces in Shabwa
Yemeni military media publishes footage from Shabwa, Yemen, showing the UAE-backed coalition forces retreating after sustaining heavy losses at the hands of the Yemeni Army and Popular Committees.
The Yemeni military media broadcasted footage showing the UAE-backed forces withdrawing after sustaining heavy losses following attacks by the Yemeni army and popular committees in Shabwa.
The footage shows military jeeps getting shelled and shot by the Yemeni army and popular committees, leading to fires and heavy material damages. The gunmen in the jeeps were later shown escaping and withdrawing.
Some of the vehicles were within military sites and fortifications, and the Saudi-led coalition conducted air raids in the area to facilitate the escape of its fighters.
Commenting on the scenes some described as humiliating for the coalition forces, Ansar Allah political bureau member Ali Al-Qahoum told Al Mayadeen the Sanaa forces had the upper hand.
"The propaganda campaign pursued by Saudi Arabia and the UAE has been met with failure," Al-Qahoum added, adding that the two Gulf states were unable to achieve their goals in Shabwa "despite the support they offered to ISIS and Al-Qaeda fighters, which they are betting on."
Every moment of the battle is being documented, and there is proof it is not going how they imagined, he asserted.
The Sanaa government forces have supervised the lifting of debris in the al-Libi residential neighborhood in the north of the capital, which has sustained heavy material and human losses due to the Saudi-led coalition's constant raids in the area.
The coalition of aggression also launched a series of violent air raids on the capital Sanaa, Al Mayadeen correspondent reported Wednesday.
