Many Houthi leaders have withdrawn from the southern fighting fronts of the Marib Governorate, northeastern Yemen. An informed source in the capital, Sanaa said.

According to the source, a number of the first and second-ranking field and security leaders of the Houthi militia withdrew from the Juba front, following disagreements with the Houthi leader called Hashem Ghumari over participation in the front lines.

Ghumari wanted to put several Houthi leaders into the first series of ongoing battles but they refused his orders. The source added.
