Al-Houthis are trying to extend their control over a coastal strip to Midi seaport, one of the ports that receive vessels which might give the groups the opportunity to be supplied with weapons and provisions from outside Yemen.

During the last few weeks al-Houthis could take control over Kahlah al-Sharaf district in Hajjah governorate, which is believed to be an attempt by al-Houthis to take over a highway linking the sea with the Yemeni capital, Sana'a.

Over the past months, al-Houthis have exploited the turbulence experienced in the Yemeni capital Sana'a to take control over Saada, their stronghold, and al-Jawf Governorate, and now seeking to take over Hajjah, which will be the third province to fall into their hands.
