Ramadan Death Count: Yemen 15/05/19

(Qa’atabah) The squeeze continues on the Iranian backed Houthi rebels inside Yemen with the opening of a surprise new front centred around the city of Qa’atabah which is situated just outside the mountainous terrain the rebels still hold. The initial attack saw around 40 rebels killed on Sunday, the follow up operation has resulted in an further 97 Houthi rebels killed and an additional 120 taken prisoner. It seems that with Iran now having to concentrate on what is happening around its own borders,  add the huge shortfall in oil revenue , it is no longer able to fund the mischief it has been carrying out inside Yemen as it used to do. Expect further set backs for the rebels in the coming months.

Ramadan death toll stands at 430
