It also confirmed that the weapons of the new elements have not been identified, indicating that they are sniping specialists and that the goal is to deploy them in the vicinity of the city in anticipation for a decisive battle before Eid al-Fitr, its indications began on the ground with Sana’a forces advance on the battlefronts, especially at the western entrance to the city.
This move by coalition indicates that it is not relying on the factions loyal to it, not to mention, it showed the amount of attrition in its ranks. Its timing also indicates that the United States, which has recently escalated its hostility towards Sana’a after failing to impose its agenda diplomatically, is throwing the last card to prevent the defeat of Saudi Arabia in its last stronghold in north of Yemen.
