The Yemeni army, with support from the Arab Coalition supporting legitimacy, blocked an attempt by the Houthi militias to open routes between Hodeidah and Sanaa.

The sources added that Houthi militias had sent reinforcements to attack army posts but suffered severe losses, and failed to infiltrate the road to Hodeidah from Sanaa from the Kilo 10 area.

The army’s media center said that 70 Houthis were killed during violent battles where the Arab Coalitions’ vigorous air raids caused severe losses on the militias’ fronts in Hodeidah.

Sources said that the air raids targeted Houthi gatherings and bases killing dozens, and destroying an armed vehicle.

In a related development, the Yemeni army backed by the Arab coalition liberated areas after intense fighting with the Houthis in west Taiz.

A military source reported that the Houthi militias’ members tried to attack a post for the Yemeni army in Taiz, leading to the killing of eight members of the coup militias, while 15 others were injured.
