The Yemeni national army, backed by Arab fighter jets, gained control over the Maran region and other villages that were under the control of the Houthi militias in Saada.

The Orouba Brigade’s Commander Major General Abdulkarim al-Sadi told Al Arabiya correspondent that his forces advanced successfully toward positions in Maran and neighboring villages, where they gained control over the region.

He added that his forces advanced deeply into the region after they liberated more than 40 kilometers of mountainous areas and terrains.

The coalitions backed the Yemeni army during its military advances following the  targeting of Houthi reinforcements coming from Maran to support its military fronts.
