Yemeni Forces Win Back Key Regions in Southern Provinces
The Yemeni forces took control of a number of villages in Damet region in Zale province, and killed tens of terrorists in heavy clashes.
The army and popular forces also advanced from al-Qassr region towards Klabe in Ta’iz province.
On Wednesday, Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters and army troops killed a ranking Saudi commander and dozens of his forces in Ta’iz.
The Yemeni forces took control of a military base that had been occupied by Saudi forces in Ta’iz province a while ago, and killed a senior Saudi commander and his troops deployed in the base.
Saudi troops later launched a counter-offensive to take back the base, but they failed and escaped the region after losing a number of their vehicles.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 226 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 6,919 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.
