Saudi forces and mercenaries suffer heavy losses in combat surrounding Ma’rib

A commander in the invading coalition’s Rapid Reaction Forces was killed on Thursday, during clashes on the outskirts of the northwestern city of Ma’rib. Captain Suleiman al-Damani Nasser Ahmed Al-Salmi was killed by Yemeni army forces in the latest round of conflict surrounding the key Saudi-occupied city.

Local sources in Ma’rib province said that the coalition forces suffered heavy losses in lives and equipment, including military leaders, during failed attempts by coalition forces to march towards positions controlled by Yemeni army forces in the district of Raghwan and Madgul, northwest of the city of Ma’rib itself.

The sources said that Captain Suleiman al-Damani Nasser Ahmed Al-Salmi, commander of the Rapid Reaction Forces in the 7th Military Zone, was killed by Yemeni army and Popular Committees forces, during the fighting that took place on the outskirts of the districts of Raghwan and Medghal.

Two days ago, the coalition forces lost several military commanders, including high-ranking military commanders in on the outskirts of Raghwan front.

Ma’rib is one of the most important Yemeni cities that are still occupied by Saudi forces. The Yemeni army and Popular Committees have steadily been advancing on the city over the past months, with the goal of liberating Ma’rib from the occupation.
