Commander of Pro-Hadi Militants Captured by Ansarullah
Ansarullah Spokesman Ali al-Houthi announced on Saturday that the revolutionary forces have taken the leader of the forces loyal to fugitive president Mansour Hadi.
“Abu Farouq, a senior commander of pro-Hadi militants who had hidden in an Al-Qaeda hideout in the Southern parts of Aden has been captured,” Al-Houthi told FNA on Saturday.
He noted that the Yemeni forces were engaged in heavy clashes with the terrorists for over two hours, killing tens of the terrorists and capturing Abu Farouq.
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 former 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 129 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,329 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
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.
