Al Arabiya camera crew filmed on Saturday inside the vicinity of Yemen’s Hodeidah airport after the Yemeni legitimate forces with the popular resistance backed by the Arab coalition, freed the airport from the grip of the Houthi militia.

Al Arabiya correspondent said an operation to remove landmines is going on, while the Yemeni Army started combing the area for Houthi fighters and blocking the main highway linking between Hodeidah and Sanaa.

The correspondent confirmed that 30 Houthis were killed in the area of Khoukha and the coastal road, pointing out that the Houthi militias have taken many families near the airport hostages, while the Yemeni army has warned civilians to stay inside their homes.

The Houthi militias are in a chaotic state, as the correspondent reported.
