Yemeni officials said that fierce fighting broke out between Yemeni government forces and Houthi groups again, allowing a week-long violence in strategic Malib province to continue.

The battle has killed dozens of people and raised serious doubts about the United Nations-led efforts to resume peace negotiations.

The report said that Houthi launched another attack on the oil-rich province earlier this month. The province is controlled by the Yemeni government.

However, military officials on both sides said that the Houthis had encountered stubborn resistance and made no progress.

The Yemen War began in 2014, when the Houthis seized the capital Sana’a and most of the northern part of the country, the report said.

A few months later, with the support of the United States, the Saudi-led international coalition forces defeated the Houthi.

The conflict has killed about 130,000 people and caused the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.

The report pointed out that the Houthis tried to seize control of Marib province by closing the border with Saudi Arabia in the south and controlling oil fields, thus gaining an advantage in possible peace negotiations.

According to the report, panicked by the Houthi return, the Saudi-led coalition bombed their convoy in the vast desert around Marib province.

Officials said that the coalition forces also mobilized ground troops from the Yemeni government-controlled provinces of Ta’iz and Shebwo.

Al-Houthi said on the 9th that the Saudi-led coalition launched at least 10 air strikes in Marib province, and also launched two air strikes on neighboring Al-Jov province.

Officials say more than 48 people have been killed and more than 120 injured in the past two days, most of whom are from Houthis.
