Houthi militias have reportedly seized the money which was found with Yemen’s slain ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Saba news agency, which is controlled by Houthis in Sana’a, reported that Mahdi al-Mashat, head of the so-called Supreme Political Council of Houthi, directed to hand over the money to the Central Bank of Yemen.

On the other hand, the Mouwazaa directorate in Taiz was liberated Thursday without any use of force after the Houthi militias fled the area. They reportedly left the area as supplies were running out for its personnel in the al-Burh region in Maqbna directorate.

Beseiged enclaves

Military sources are expecting the Houthi militias to surrender in the rest of their besieged enclaves in al-Amri, Qahboub, Wazyia that are parts of Mount Habshi and Maqbna.

In another development, it has been reported that the fall of the last strongholds of the militias on the west coast of Taiz is guaranteed, as a result of the tightening control of Yemen's legitimate authority on al-Burh region.

This region was under the grip of the Houthis for the last three years. It is now paving the way for the National Army, helped by the Arab Coalition, to expel the Houthis to Hodeidah and its strategic port.
