Arab coalition spokesman Ahmed Asiri told Al Arabiya News Channel on Saturday that the Yemeni army has now become capable of managing operations in the country.

"The Yemeni army is still achieving progress on all fronts in Yemen," Asiri said.

"We've worked on targeting Houthi rebels while training the Yemeni army at the same time," he added.

Asiri also said that Iran had publicly admitted to smuggling arms to Houthi militias in Yemen.

The Saudi-led coalition began its military intervention in Yemen against Houthi militias and in support of the legitimate government in March 2015.
