The Yemeni army aided by the Arab coalition’s air force seized posts that the Houthi militia had controlled in the Al-Qabbaytah District, north of Lahij.

Army forces advanced west of Al-Qabbaytah District following violent clashes with the Houthi militias which were deterred from several posts.

A source said the army seized control of most mountainous areas surrounding the areas of Moujar, Soubeih and Wadi al-Khamis, adding that there will still violent battles towards Souq al-Khamees.

At least 10 Houthi fighters were killed, the source added.

The army also continued to advance towards the strategic Al-Rakiza Mountain in west Al-Qabbaytah District where militias are stationed.

Locals said Houthis retaliated by shelling citizens’ houses from mountainous areas they’re positioned in west of Al-Qabbaytah.
