Yemeni Vice President and Prime Minister Khaled Bahah, who arrived from Abu Dhabi to his country’s city of Marib on Sunday, said the national army and resistance forces have come closer to the capital Sanaa after Marib’s liberation.
This is the first visit by a high-ranking Yemeni official to Marib following its liberation from Houthi rebels and forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
Meanwhile, army troops and popular resistance forces have bypassed mines planted by the Houthis on the path to Lahij governorate.
A popular resistance source said army forces had progressed in areas surrounding the city of Taez, following battles that lasted five days.
According to the source, army forces seized control of the Hameem area and some mountains overlooking Al-Rahida, a Houthi stronghold northwest of Taez.
