Yemen’s army to retake control of strategic camp west of Taiz

Published: Updated:

The Yemeni national army, supported by the Arab Alliance, made significant progress on Sunday on the southern and eastern fronts of Khalid Bin Al Waleed strategic camp west of Taiz, and is now close to commanding the tactical camp.

Over the past few days, the army has managed to control the western gate of the camp and large parts of it.

Furthermore, the Alliance‘s Fighters launched a series of raids against militia hideouts east and northeast of the camp.

They also targeted the locations of the rebels at the Al-Mocha crossroads and Dhubab district in Taiz governorate, as well as the Midi and Abs directorate in the border province of Hajjah.

Khalid Bin Al Waleed camp is considered the most important and strong shield of the rebels in Taiz. With its downfall, the militias will completely lose leverage and influence in the city. It is also an important starting point for the emancipation of al-Hudaydah city, according to those interested in Yemeni affairs.

On the other hand, Yemeni naval forces continued to comb the Midi coasts looking for naval mines planted by the Houthi militias and the ousted Salah, in an operation dubbed "Naval Arrow” with the assistance of the Saudi-led Arab Alliance.
