Yemeni Forces Kill Tens of Pro-Hadi, Al-Qaeda Militants in Aden
The Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters continued their offensives on the terrorists’ positions in Southern Yemen, and killed tens of pro-Hadi and Al-Qaeda militants in heavy clashes in the city of Aden.
Heavy clashes erupted between the Yemeni forces and the foreign-backed terrorists in al-Tawahi and al-Mo’ala regions in the suburbs of Aden city.
The Yemeni army and Ansarullah movement, meantime, rejected the media news on the fall of Aden in the terrorists’ hands.
The Yemeni forces also continued their advances in the city of al-Mansoura in Aden province.
On Friday, the Yemeni army launched missile attacks on strategic military bases in Southern Saudi Arabia in retaliation for Riyadh’s continued airstrikes on Yemen.
The Yemeni forces hit al-Moazab military base with 10 missiles and al-Khoube military base with 6 missiles today.
The Yemeni army also destroyed the watch tower of Al-Hasira military base in Jizan.
Yemeni Army Spokesman Brigadier General Sharaf Luqman said in a statement that the missiles hit and destroyed the target in precision attacks.
Also on Friday, civilian targets were pummeled by Saudi air raids in the Northwestern province of Sa’ada in which large groups of people lost their lives.
After Ansarullah’s major gains in the fight, Riyadh launched airstrikes against Yemen on March 26 without a UN’s mandate. Saudi Arabia aims to undermine the Ansarullah popular fighters and restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.
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 aerial bombardments have so far claimed the lives of at least 5,122 people, mostly women and children.
