50 Killed in Heavy Fighting in Yemen’s Maarib

Another weekend of heavy fighting in Yemen’s contested Maarib Province has left at least 50 fighters killed, according to pro-Saudi sources, who claimed 43 Houthis and seven soldiers killed in the past 48 hours.

This is a continuation and escalation of fighting there, after at least 140 fighters were reported killed in the past week. What had been multiple fights per week now seems to be a constant battle.

Officials estimated 400 combatants killed in the area so far in September. The exact split is not clear, as pro-Saudi officials claim Houthis are overwhelmingly killed at a higher rate, but neither side seems to be winning the fight in any definitive way.
