Fighters of the Arab Coalition to support legitimacy in Yemen destroyed a warehouse for light and medium weapons and ammunition for Iranian-backed Houthi militias in the area of "Bani Maeen" in district of Saada province.


The coalition fighter jets intensified airstrikes on these Houthi positions.


This has resulted in the destruction of coup vehicles in the strategic Jabal al-Ikab district, the Saudi Press Agency reported.


The raids, according to the website (September Net) of the Yemeni Ministry of Defense, lead to deaths and injuries among the militias.


The coalition also attacked Houthi positions in Al-Jawf province, targeting Houthi militias' locations and gatherings.


This also resulted in the loss of Houthi lives and equipment.
