The Yemeni army - aided by Arab coalition forces - seized complete control over the coastal Midi and Harad fronts in the city of Hajjah, northwest of the capital Sanaa, an Al Arabiya correspondent reported.

Seizing control over Harad and Midi is considered an important logistical progress for Arab coalition forces and legitimate Yemeni forces.

Houthi militias retreated 40 kilometers inside Yemen, according to an Al Arabiya crew that toured inside Harad.

Al Arabiya is considered the first television channel to accompany legitimate forces after they seized full control over the crossing and forced rebels to retreat.
