Rebel forces are heading from the city of Abyan towards the city of Aden at night out of fear of the coalition’s strikes.
Leaders of ground forces affiliated with legitimate president Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi and other forces defending Aden have urged Decisive Storm forces to urgently intervene and end this rebels’ progress especially after the Fifth Brigade in Sabir joined them (the rebels).
Meanwhile, in Beihan, the Balharith tribe, aided by Shabwa and Marib tribes, attacked rebels causing human and material losses among their ranks as hundreds others fled.
Leader of the Balharith tribe Al-Fuhayed bin Hussyan and other tribal leaders pledged to purge their areas of rebels and their allies. They also voiced their support of the Decisive Storm campaign and commended Saudi Arabia’s role in helping the Yemeni people confront the coup against the legitimate state.
In al-Dalea governorate, tribes attacked and killed eight rebels after Houthi forces aimlessly and heavily shelled citizens’ towns and residences.
This happened as rebels, led by Brigade 33, attempted to advance towards the city of al-Dalea by shelling it from the sides of Qa'tabah and Sannah. The rebel forces have so far failed due to the city’s resistance by its tribes who’ve also appealed for help to end the shelling of their houses.
Meanwhile, in Aden, the city’s residents continue to confront any sleeper cells. The rebel forces have suffered great losses there, according to eyewitnesses and health officials.
Saudi Arabia is leading a 10-state coalition to combat the Houthi’s advancement of Yemen in support of the country’s legitimate President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi and his government.
