Violent  battles erupted  between Houthis and tribesmen in Hajour  District, Haja Province, north-west Yemen.

According to the same sources, Houthis deployed more fighters and armored vehicles in the surrounding areas after tribes had cut a supply line which prevented  Houthis from receiving reinforcement.

In response to the offensive launched by Houthis, the Saudi-led coalition lanuched air strikes which targeted and destroyed two tanks and two armored vehicles in Hajour  District, , north-west Yemen, a military source said.
