Yemeni prime minister, Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr said, on Friday, that the Houthi militia lost most of its strength and that “its end is near and inevitable,” calling on those who are misled by them to return to their right mind and support the federal state of Yemen.

He stressed that the Yemeni people “will not accept the myth of the divine right to rule,” referring to the Houthi militia’s ideology.

This occurred during a telephone conversation with the governor of Bayda, Saleh al-Rasas, to discuss the field victories achieved by the Yemeni army, supported by the Arab coalition to support the liberation of the entire province of the Iran-backed Houthi militia, according to official Yemeni news agency.

The Yemeni Prime Minister praised the field victories achieved in a number of fronts in Bayda, which is now progressing towards liberating all areas from the grip of the militia.

The Yemeni army and the Popular Resistance, with the support of the coalition, are fighting the completion of the liberation of Bayda amid continuous progress in the field, to eliminate the occupation of the militia.

Liberating Bayda will open a new front in the direction of Dhamar and will allow for surrounding the capital Sanaa from the south.
