As anti-houthi sources point out, there are no signatures from any sheiks of Marib, so it's kind of suspect, but houthi spokesmen have been very vocal about Marib city "falling" from the inside...

Translation is wonky and the Arak area is bigger than only the village in link so it's not even clear that they crossed the river.
It's extremely tiresome to guess and the ridiculously high amount of false reports from the fronts lately makes me skeptical, but if you ask me they are simply approaching the unnamed village to the west of Ark-al-Tuaiman:

I can't find many clearly defined defensive positions in this mountainous region between the river (Wadi Dhana) and the Jubah-Marib road making me think it's part of the neutral Bani Dabyan tribal region.
Presumably the mountain range (brown line) could be used defensively by pro-Hadi forces but it cannot be crossed directly with vehicles (white lines=usable roads).
Methinks they won't put up much of a fight, if any and instead relegate themselves to the vicinity of the Jubah-Marib road.
If the houthis commit to advancing in this region, Jabal Murad could be in big doo-doo.

Speaking of Jabal Murad, whatever happened to the supposedly massive houthi reinforcements down there?
All I've seen has been reports of skirmishes and failed infiltration attempts.
It's a gargantuan stretch for sure, but what if all the ruckus north and west of Marib city is a ruse?

Every time I check in on Ethiopia it's just more massacre videos, peak African warfare, I've seen basically nothing of the fighting in comparison.

>>302122
My assumption at this point is that the bothering in that area was the distraction to draw some attention away from the northern meatgrinder, I know there were small reports at the beginning but my understanding is that the area can't possibly be defended heavily enough that if they wanted to take it and utilised their resources they couldn't.
I'm not really sure that all this advancing to the south of the dam is going to lead to anything on its own, Jabal al Balaq al Qibli seemed like a really big move but as I understand they lost it. I guess we will see which direction Ma'rib falls from but right now i'm not seeing it, everything seems possible.
