Yemeni army liberates new fronts in heart of Houthi stronghold Saada

Published: Updated:

In a new military operation on Tuesday, the Yemeni army with support from the Arab Coalition liberated new fronts lying between the regions of Maran and Alab northwest of Yemen’s Saada.

The commander of the army’s Third Brigade, Brigadier Aziz al-Khattabi, said that liberating these fronts in the heart of the Houthi stronghold in Saada came after a strategic study by the commanders of the battles who aim to end the militias control in the area.

Khattabi confirmed that through the operation, the army was able to liberate a series of mountains, and the al-Baha souq, which stretches over about 35 kilometers.

He added that the battles caused losses in Houthi militiamen and equipment, as the attack took them by surprise.

With support from the Arab Coalition, the army is advancing in Saada from five different axes.
