At least 30 Houthi militiamen were killed in Yemen’s Saada and al-Jawf following Arab Coalition air raids and artillery attacks on Sunday.

An Al Arabiya reporter said that the Yemeni army has made significant advances in Hajjah following the attacks on Houthi posts.

Another source in Saada said that the army also cleared out mines planted by the militias which were randomly paced across large areas of land.

This came after the forces of the 63rd Infantry Brigade in the Yemeni army, led by Brig. Yasser Majali, made significant field progress in the Baqim front north of Saada on Saturday.

The forces were able to liberate a number of villages and sites, after fierce battles with support from Arab Coalition air raids.

During the fighting, dozens of Houthis were killed and wounded, while dozens fled, and the army was able to liberate the villages of al-Saleh, al-Shraim and al-Matar.
