Dozens of Houthi militants were killed on Wednesday after fierce clashes with Yemen's national army supported by coalition fighters in the district of Midi west of Hajjah.

Al Arabiya correspondent in Yemen said that 40 elements of the Houthis were killed in raids by the coalition fighters in Midi Front, to support the movement of the National Army forces.

A military source confirmed that a number of sites and machinery belonging to the Houthis were accurately hit, especially in the western neighborhoods where the militias are still stationed.

The Yemeni army forces on Tuesday liberated several new strategic locations north of the southern province of Lahj, after clashes with the Houthi militia.

The Yemeni army tightened its control of the strategic mountain of Shivan in the Karash district of Qubaytah governorate north of Lahj province.

It will continue to advance towards the Al-Shuraijah area south towards Taiz governorate, amid huge losses among Houthi militants.
