The Saudi-led Arab Coalition launched a series of air raids against Iran-backed Houthi militia camps and targets, amid constant flights of alliance fighter jets over the capital Sanaa

Strikes targeted al-Sabaha camp in Houthi-held Sanaa, in addition to other camps in the Arhab directorate, north of Sanaa, eyewitnesses told Asharq Al-Awsat

The Houthis suffered troop and material losses in these military operations

Elsewhere, Coalition strikes focused on vital Houthi positions in a number of areas, including southern Hodeidah and the Taiz and al-Jawf fronts

On another battlefront, Yemeni Popular Resistance forces continued to wage fierce battles in southern Hodeidah as part of a military operation to liberate the Durayhmi district

“Houthi militias continue to detain people in their homes in Durayhmi, using them as human shields against advancing coalition forces,” local residents told Asharq Al-Awsat

Sources said raids targeted militia concentrations in Durayhmi, forcing the Houthis to take extreme measures against the local civilian population

The militias threatened civilians against fleeing, warning them that they will blow up their houses should they try to do so, locals reported

Meanwhile, Abdulwahid al-Ibrahimi, a top militia leader who is close to the Houthi chief, Abdulmalik al-Houthi, was shot dead by the Popular Resistance fighters in Durayhmi on August 9, witnesses said

Fighting also resumed in the al-Silw district, southeast of Taiz, after Houthis attempted to slip behind National Army defense lines and go deeper into district territories

Pro-government military operations also saw the shelling of vital Houthi posts on the al-Malajem front in the al-Bayda governorate
