Yemen’s army and resistance forces, supported by the Arab Coalition, struck Houthi militias inflicting major losses in the Mokha Front, a military source told Al-Arabiya television channel on Tuesday.

The situation raged at the Mokha Front again after the national army launched a surprise attack against militias’ posts west of Khaled’s camp.

A source added that national army troops restored the Risyan bridge and cut the link between Hodeideah and Taiz near al-Barh.

Meanwhile, the coalition jets launched 30 strikes against Khaled’s camp and destroyed three weapons’ warehouses in Mokha and which militias used to store their heavy weapons.
