In a statement, the Yemeni army said, “National army forces fought fierce battles with the Houthi militia in Nahm, east of the capital, and killed 17 militiamen, and wounded dozens.”
They added that the militia was trying to sneak into the al-Tabab mountains in the last two days to control this vital location.
Among those killed were three Houthi field commanders. According to the army’s statement, 33 militiamen were captured, including four field commanders.
The army was able to retrieve large amounts of weapons and ammunition following the battles in Nahm.
Hundreds of militiamen were killed and injured following several battles in the last weeks, in addition to air raids carried out by the Arab Coalition in Sanaa.
