Houthis blow up homes after losing control in Al-Bayda, Marib

Following the Yemeni government’s military advance against Houthi rebels in Al-Zaher district in Al-Bayda province and the Rahabah district in Marib province in early July, the Iran-backed group launched counteroffensives to recapture the two districts. After recapturing Al-Zaher and some areas of Rahabah, Houthis resorted to using their old tactic of blowing up homes of opponents in these districts.

After the Houthis recaptured Al-Zaher on July 8, they blew up the home of Hussein al-Humaiqani on July 25. Houthi officials haven’t spoken about this, and Houthi-aligned media outlets have not broadcast the news. Houthis in the past have targeted the homes of people who fought against them to stop their expansion in and outside Saada in northern Yemen. Humaiqani helped government forces gain control of Al-Zaher on July 5.
