The Yemeni armed forces raised on Saturday the country’s flag on the roofs of the liberated buildings in Kitaf directorate in Saada governorate.

This move came in the heels of the military advancement of the army backed by the Arab coalition.

On Friday the Yemeni army gained control over al-Etfayn in Kitaf directorate and raised the country’s flag over a government building.

Meanwhile, Yemeni media outlets quoted a military leader in Yemeni armed forces that the military is close to gain control over al-Malajim in al-Bayda, expecting Houthi militias to surrender.

Earlier on Friday, the Yemeni armed forces backed by the Arab coalition liberated the mountain chain and al-Faraa village in Saada governorate from Houthi militia control.

Military field sources told Al Arabiya.net that the Yemeni army and coalition have gained control over the mountainous chain which overlooks al- Faraa from the west and south-west, and the roads linking Kitaf with al-Buqaa.
