Yemeni army forces extracted several mines and explosive devices from two primary schools, and multiple neighboring buildings in the center of the Baqim directorate in Yemen's Saada.

The national army succeeded in reaching the facilities for the first time since the Houthi militias took control over them, continuing to extract mines from the rest of the liberated areas in Baqim and its surroundings.

This is done in hopes of making it safe for citizens to return to their homes, and bring life back to normal in liberated areas and villages.

In the Dhala province, army forces also completed the liberation of Tabab Husmi, following clashes with the Houthi militias, which resulted in the death of 15 Houthis and injury of others.

The army also managed to take control of the mountains of Maharba and Mahlala, as well as a number of other villages.
