Arab coalition bombs secret Houthi hideouts, military reinforcements to Saada
The Saudi-led Arab coalition in Yemen continued its support of the Yemeni army where they executed 15 air raids on Houthi sites and hideouts in Naseem and Khadraa farms south of Harad.
The Yemeni army also regained control of strategic sites close to Saudi borders in Albuqa, east of Saada, in an area where Houthi militia and ousted Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh forces are centered.
Military reinforcements comprising of two brigades from Marib, arrived in Saada province to support army units on the Kitaf Albuqa near the Saudi border.
The arrival of these reinforcements complimented regaining position control and seizing a number of weapons and explosives between the Saada and al-Jawf governorates.
Other military reinforcements included long-range rockets and artillery which took down remaining Houthi camp sites in the suburbs of Arhab and Ben Hashish northeast of the capital Sanaa.
The futile attempts by the militias to restore the positions of Jabal al-Marthad, by Serwah front, west of Marib, resulted in the breakdown of the militia attack and the killing of Houthi leader Brigadier Abdullah Ahsan al-Hamzi, called Abu Haidar and 10 others.
