Yemen Army, Committees Advance towards Aden, Strike Saudi Border Sites
The Yemeni army and popular committees loyal to Ansarullah revolutionary movement launched a major rocketry attack against the Saudi border sites, inflicting heavy losses upon them.
Media reports mentioned that a large number of Saudi soldiers were killed and that their vehicles were destroyed.
The Yemeni forces are advancing toward the southern city of Aden, as they secured considerable gains in the region.
Field sources in Yemen reported that the allied forces captured Damat district in Dale’a province, after they forced the Saudi-led forces out of it.
The AFP news agency also reported that Damat was in the hands of the army and the committees.
Meanwhile, the allied forces also took control of a strategic hilltop of al-Yaes which overlook al-Anad airbase in the country’s southwestern Lahij province.
The airbase, located some 60 kilometers from Aden, fell to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi loyalists in July following a lengthy offensive.
Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition. Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.
However, Yemeni army, backed by the committees has been responding to the aggression by targeting several Saudi border military posts and cleansing several areas across the country, especially the country’s south, from Hadi and al-Qaeda-linked militias.
