Yemen’s Hadi meets with U.N. envoy
The men are discussing ways to coordinate humanitarian aid efforts during the five-day truce
Yemeni President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi met Sunday with the U.N. envoy to Yemen to coordinate humanitarian aid efforts during truce, according to Al Arabiya News channel.
The meeting comes a day after forces loyal to Hadi captured dozens of Iranian-backed Houthi militias in the country’s southern city of al-Dalea.
The Popular Resistance seized the militias and detained them at a checkpoint in the southern city as they were escaping from battle fronts in the country's province of Lahej.
Houthi militias have also escaped battle fronts in the country’s southern city of Aden after notable advances from the Popular Resistance helped by the Arab coalition.
A coalition of Arab states has been bombarding Houthi forces since late March in a bid to reinstate Hadi. It has also run training programs for Yemeni soldiers loyal to Hadi and dropped arms to local forces fighting the Houthis.
In the latest military action, coalition warplanes bombed targets across Yemen including the capital Sanaa, according to Reuters news agency.
They also bombed several districts in Aden, including Dar Saad, Hael and al Khadra and targets in Marib, Shabwa, Abyan, Taiz and Amran provinces.
A battle that could define the Yemen warAlthough not unexpected, the Houthi defeat in Aden and the gradual return of Yemeni government officials could prove to be a turning point in the conflict Middle East
