The UAE Armed Forces bombed two military vehicles belonging to Houthi militia in the Yemeni district of Haiys in the Hudayah Governorate.

A 51-second video posted on Twitter by state news agency Wam on Tuesday shows satellite footage of a Houthi vehicle stopping at a shed where men emerge.

They re-enter the vehicle which is later seen travelling along a road before it is hit by an airstrike that destroys it.

According to Wam, the first airstrike resulted in the destruction of a large amount of the militia's weapons and ammunition, while the second eliminated dozens of Houthi personnel.

The two vehicles were moving to strengthen the Iranian-backed Houthi militia forces.

On Sunday, an Arab Coalition aircraft bombed a Houthi militia military vehicle used as a platform to launch rockets into the city of Haiys.

The UAE Armed Forces, part of the Saudi-led Arab Coalition forces to support legitimacy in Yemen, continue to carry out support operations for the legitimate forces as they move towards the Haiys district.
