The Saudi-led coalition air defenses intercepted and destroyed two ballistic missiles in Marib in Yemen.

Meanwhile, national army forces seized control of an arms warehouse that belongs for Houthi militias and forces loyal to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh in the area surrounding Khaled bin al-Walid camp. The warehouse contained small, light and heavy weapons and ammunition.

Army forces made these gains as they advance towards the camp.

Battles are still ongoing around the camp as legitimate forces intensified their attack on militias’ gatherings and pockets in the north, east and west and managed to deter militias from their posts and to tighten their siege.

Military aid provided by the Arab coalition forces was delivered to fronts in East Mokha. The coalition air force also helped legitimate forces pursue militias in some mountainous areas inside the Khaled bin al-Walid camp. The army and resistance forces have as a result advanced in the western and southern gates of the camp.
