>Houthi forces withdraw from the Shaeb Jamila south of Sirwah after reactivating the Houthi agreement with the Bani Dabyan tribes
Kawfil front collapsed thanks to the maneuver in Wadi Dhana and that's what matters.
This likely means an incursion into northwest Jubah won't happen anytime soon, but i reckon seizing the mountains takes higher priority for the houthis at the moment.
The houthis didn't attempt to advance yesterday but today there are intense clashes in the Damanah area east of Kawfil and they have supposedly launched a "massive and violent" attack on the Alam front.
Will update if any map changes occur.
>A Turkish relief organization raises the flag of the Syrian regime on its banners while distributing relief in the camps of Azaz in the northern countryside of Aleppo.
>houthi gains during the month of February thus far
First source claiming Wadi Nakhla (NW front) is captured, even claiming the first row of mountains overlooking it is captured. Big development if true.
al-Alam front, no comments.

No clue where Shaeb al-Hamar exactly is but my guess is near Jabal Hamar:http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=15.367957&lon=45.166512&z=13&m=bs&show=/40637507/Jabal-Hamar
Could be related to a claim made a couple hours ago that the houthis managed to capture some mercenaries who was on their way to Camp Kawfil.

Rare Syria Shitmupdate
Gov't forces reentered and took control of Tafas following escalation of tensions in Dara'a governorate.
Also, a small update on frontlines - I erased frontlines in joint-control areas but still maintain frontlines between factions.
I have the yearly best of videos and a few small ones, other than that no.
Actually I think I have some of the operation videos, i’ll have to check which ones.
If you want any of them I can throw them up on a MEGA or something.
>>301346>The Houthis cut the Arqoub line and take down a site near the village of Al-Zour.https://twitter.com/S4MOSABI/status/1360947937900171267
No clue what or where the Arqoub line is...
I've been analyzing the mountain front of west Marib and have come to the conclusion that Talat al-Hamra actually is the mountain to the west of where it is on wikimapia.
The lack of geo-locatable image proof doesn't lend credence to either location, but my theory makes sense when comparing signs of actual fortification on the two mountains, supply lines and line of sight.
The frontline north/northeast of the Talat al-Hamra area i am even more unsure about.
Hopefully i am wrong or a breakthrough actually happens this time, the houthis have been stopped at Talat al-Hamra in previous offensives and sadly it's starting to look like a re-run...
What a world, when the centre-left party are stricter against illegals than the cheeto-tinted MIGA messiah.
Yemen Shitmupdate - minor Houthi gains in central-west Marib.
Looks like the houthis have made some gains, more info soon.
Jabal Balaq al-Qibli and al-Zur village in the background of the pic FYI.
Unconfirmed reports of the Houthis having captured Jabal Al-Balaq, (x) on that for now.
>>301467>Marib fronts reigned completely calm with the intense flight of coalition aircrafthttps://twitter.com/aalnaasi/status/1361438260724174851
Yeah, Jabal Al-Balaq hasn't been captured.
>Hadi forces attack the positions of the Houthi forces, east of Malbouda - east of Medghal, without achieving any progress https://twitter.com/aalnaasi/status/1362050278862835715http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=15.525496&lon=45.202303&z=16&m=bs&show=/40806810/Malbudah
I'm 100% certain that this isn't the real location of Malbudah, but it's around there, probably one of the hills 1-2km north of where it is on wikimapia.

A "leaked" houthi document showing the terms for reconciliation for the tribes of Marib.

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...
For now, very unconfirmed news: Reportedly Asdas (Raghwan district) has captured and the houthis have reached the farmlands between Marib and the dam.
I won't believe it until we see some visual evidence.
Something might be brewing near al-Bab...

For now let's put an (x) on them advancing that far today, but the reports from the al-Alam/Ruwayq front are sounding damn good.
thanks for all the updates
did they take marib dam? isw is claming it, but i cant belive it
big if true
>>301852>did they take marib dam? isw is claming it, but i cant belive it
Nah, they probably misunderstood the reports of the houthis reaching the dam reservoir.
Major correction to the situation in Panjwayi area to the immediate west of Kandahar city

wtf is going on in TFSA territory, there was a SVBIED attack like two days ago and tonight a car bombhttps://twitter.com/swed005/status/1363197902227701760
Whoops, missed this:>The surrounding area of Arak fell to the hands of the Houthis, which is the area to which some of the displaced (from al-Zur) were transferred two days ago. https://twitter.com/S4MOSABI/status/1363256193775530000http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=15.326117&lon=45.186939&z=15&m=bs&show=/40126041/Ark-al-Tuaiman
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:http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=15.325206&lon=45.169559&z=15&m=bs&show=/40126233/Village
There was also this report a short while after i went to sleep: >Houthi forces take control of the Hisn Mutawil (Mutawil fortress) and Arak.https://twitter.com/MohamadAlmorady/status/1363363242786045953
Can't find the Hisn/Fortress and (x) on any gains report right now.
If it's true the houthis crossed the river, the hadi forces are definitely not in control of the mountains flanking the Arak village.
Which one of you russian degenerates hacked Ali's twitter?https://twitter.com/aalnaasi/status/1363597462519300098
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.
>>302121>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.
Yemen Shitmupdate - corrections for Marib and Jawf provinces.
Also I actually really don't like updating this map lmao.
Corrections: Issued a mix of gains/corrections in the area to the west of Jalrez DHQ in Wardak
Gains: Taliban contest Bauhaddin near Moqor DHQ in Ghazni, capture a string of villages to the west of besieged Jalrez DHQ in Wardak, and contest Afghanyah in central Kapisa.
I really really really like this map however.
>>302140>Jabal Murad was the distraction
Aye, i figured so aswell but now I'm not sure.>Jabal Murad can't possibly be defended heavily enough that if they wanted to take it and utilised their resources they couldn't
You're absolutely correct, but there are other ways to win that doesn't involve such savagery. >Jabal al Balaq al Qibli seemed like a really big move but as I understand they lost it
If you ask me they never captured it.
