Yemeni Troops Tighten Noose on Al-Qaeda in Aden
Yemen’s popular and army forces closed in on Al-Qaeda positions in Aden province before a major offensive.
FNA dispatches from the coastal province said on Friday that the popular forces have tightened the noose on Al-Qaeda terrorists in Be’r Ahmad in Aden.
Also, an informed military source told Yemen’s official news agency, SABA, that the popular troops and army forces have killed tens of the terrorists and inflicted major damage on them.
Meantime, the Yemeni forces clashed with Al-Qaeda and Saudi-backed militants in Marab province.
Early dispatches reported fierce clashes around Nakhala camp.
FNA reports from the scene of battles also said on Friday that the popular and army forces have come in control of vast regions in al-Sahil and al-Jodan.
The Ansarullah fighters and army troops have made major advances in their fight against the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists and forces loyal to fugitive President Mansour Hadi across Yemen in recent weeks.
The clashes between the Ansarullah fighters and the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists as well as the pro-Hadi militias continue in the Southern parts of the country as Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 79 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 4,534 civilians, mostly women and children.
