Sana’a forces aborted the coalition’s dream of achieving a lightning victory in some districts of Al-Baidha, through utilizing al-Qaeda fighters stationed in As Sawma’ah district, and extremist Salafi giants’ forces, after Sana’a managed to lure these forces into ambushes and then carry out a counter-offensive operation and it was able to advance towards the positions of these forces before the recent escalation.
Scenes distributed by war media showed part of the operation to confront the forces loyal to coalition, including Al-Qaeda, in strategic locations in As Sawma’ah and Al-Zaher districts.
The scenes came to end a case of coalition’s media party and the forces loyal to it, which amounted to claiming that their forces had reached positions overlooking the city of Al-Baidha, and it is part of many scenes that a military source in Sana’a expects to be distributed by the military media, after the end of the operation aimed at completing the control of Al-Baidha province and expelling Al-Qaeda and ISIS organizations, according to previous statement.
Since the dawn of Tuesday, Sana’a forces have succeeded in regaining their positions in Al-Zaher district, and it began advancing towards As Sawma’ah district, the main stronghold of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. It also carried out missile and drone operations, targeting groups of anti-coalition forces, led to the death and injury of dozens of them.
The ceiling of media promotion by coalition for these battles has decreased, less than 24 hours after Al-Arabiya channel published news about the legitimate control on the strategic Mount Helmous, the same channel published news about an air raid targeting the mountain, as the pro-Saudi media, shifted from promoting victories to talking about inaction on the part of some forces.
