The forces of the internationally recognized government launched an attack on Harad is a city located in North-Western Yemen, close to the border with Saudi Arabia. The attack is conducted with the support of the Sunni coalition.
It involved Saudi infantry brigade and the Sudanese units, as well as the air force of Saudi Arabia. It is assumed that the regular involvement of the Saudi parts would push back the Houthis from the border.
The situation in Yemen will be discussed at the negotiations of the heir to the Saudi throne, Prince Muhammad bin Salman and the Prime Minister of the UK Theresa may. Official London is extremely concerned about the humanitarian situation in the poorest country of the Arab world.
Experts point out that the Sunni coalition has to increase participation in Yemen war. Success in the fight against Iranian-backed Houthis will affect the desire of the current Saudi authorities for the modernization of the Kingdom.
