Hadi to form anti-terrorism brigade in Aden
The conflict in Yemen continues, with Saudi-led coalition aircraft continuing to bomb Iran-backed Houthi militias
Yemeni President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi plans to establish a special anti-terrorism brigade in Aden, as part of efforts to form a national security force after cleansing the port city and neighboring provinces of insurgents.
The decision comes as part of a series of changes that will be adopted by the Yemeni government to address the political, security and economic challenges.
The conflict in Yemen continues, with Saudi-led coalition aircraft continuing to bomb Iran-backed Houthi militias’ positions in a number of Yemeni governorates.
In the capital Sanaa, coalition fighter jets launched raids on Houthi sites in the presidential palace and Mount Nuqm as well as other spots.
In al-Hudaydah city, residents and eyewitnesses reported that the coalition’s fighter jets launched a series of raids on the militias’ strongholds and their communities in Jizan Road.
The coalition’s jets also launched raids on the rebels’ positions in Taiz on the Red Sea where fierce battles are ongoing and the pro-Hadi resistance managed to control parts of the city areas.
Sources in the Popular Resistance reported the death of nine militia fighters, and dozens wounded, in two separate ambushes carried out by the resistance in Taiz.
