BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:15 P.M.) – The Saudi-backed “Southern Resistance” forces and Hadi loyalists, alongside Al-Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), launched a new offensive against the Houthis in the Ta’iz Governorate of western Yemen on Wednesday, targeting the latter’s positions near the provincial capital.

These Saudi Coalition forces are attempting to capture the eastern part of Ta’iz City, where the Houthi forces have cutoff the former’s supply route to the provincial capital.

This is not the first time that the Saudi Coalition and Al-Qaeda have worked together in Yemen, as the both forces have at times teamed up against the Houthi forces in order to achieve similar goals.

However, despite their best attempts in the past, both the Saudi Coalition and AQAP have failed to make any headway in provincial capital of Ta’iz.
