The Yemeni army liberated new areas in the Kataf district, east of the Saada Governorate, and killed 10 Houthis after violent clashes with the militia.

According to an Al Arabiya English correspondent, the army, with the support of the Arab coalition, managed to gain control of the al-Zour and Khashba Mountains, as well as cut off Houthi militia supply lines in the al-Atfain and al-Muleil front east of Saada.

According to sources, 10 Houthi militias were killed and many others were injured during the operation, while various weapons and mechanisms were seized.

The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen confirmed the continuous progress of the Yemeni National Army, supported by Arab coalition forces on all fronts of the fighting over the last three days, which resulted in heavy losses for Houthis.

The coalition also confirmed the death of 341 Houthi militias in the past 72 hours.

The military operations were also said to have left the Houthis confused as they disrupted their communication systems, which were located in the Haydan and Razeh districts in Saada.
