Yemeni Army, Committees Deny Fall of Aden Port As Saudi-US Strikes Continue
Sources from the Yemeni army and the Popular Committees (PC) fighting against the Saudi-US aggression and allied al-Qaeda terrorist operatives have denied on Thursday claims that the port of Aden city had fallen in the hands of pro-aggression militiamen, while confirming that a large part of Khor Maksar area was restored.
The army and the Committee forces continued their progress in Al-Mansoura district in Aden province, south of Yemen, and took control of the areas bordering the district.
In the meantime, the missile unit of the Yemeni army and the Committees pounded the Saudi military posts, by shelling the communications center in Dhahran-Asir with six Grad rockets.
The national Yemeni forces also fired five rockets at the hostile Saudi Al-Malhama military post in Jizan province.
In a separate development, warplanes of the Saudi-US aggression launched on Thursday aerial raids against the headquarters of the Yemeni Foreign Ministry in Sanaa. No casualties have been reported by far.
Earlier in the day, the Saudi-led coalition launched nine air raids on the province of Saada in northern Yemen, targeting a house, a school and a number of civic farms in the areas of Al-Autef and Al-Bahlan.
Moreover, huge shipments of food aid arrived in the capital Sanaa coming from Russia on board of two planes.
Acting Russian Chargé d’Affaires in Yemen voiced hopes that the aid would reach those affected by the Saudi-US aggression.
More than 2,800 people have been killed since the Saudi-US military campaign began on March 26.
More than 21.1 million people – over 80 percent of Yemen’s population – need aid, with 13 million facing food shortages, while access to water has become difficult for 9.4 million people.
The UN says the Saudi-US war on Yemen has killed more than 3,200 people so far.
