The Saudi-led Arab coalition said on Saturday it had carried out 33 operations against the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen's Marib province in the past 24 hours.


The operations left over 190 Houthi terrorists dead and destroyed 21 of their military vehicles.


In al-Bayda province, the coalition carried out 27 operations against the Houthis, killing over 150 terrorists and destroying 16 military vehicles.


The coalition announced it had thwarted "deliberate attempts by the Houthis to attack civilians and civilian locations."


"Any hostile Houthi attempt will incur an immediate response," vowed the coalition.


"We strongly warn against continuing to attempt to attack civilians," it said.


On the ground, the national Yemeni army and the Giants Brigades were on the verge of liberating Marib's Harib and al-Jawiya districts from the Houthis.


The military, Giants Brigades and resistance have completely surrounded the Houthis in southern Marib, reported Al Arabiya.


The legitimate forces have been backed by the Arab coalition jets.
