Strategic City Liberated by Yemeni Forces

11 November 2015 13:05



The Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters won control over a strategic city in Al-Dhale province from the Saudi-backed militants, field sources reported Wednesday.

The Yemeni forces seized full control over the strategic city of Qutabah in Al-Dhale after the pro-Saudi forces and militants loyal to the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, fled their military posts.

On Tuesday, the Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters retook the mountain of al-Shajara in the province of Ta’iz from the Saudi-backed militants.

The Yemeni forces won back al-Shajara Mountain and a number of hills surrounding it in al-Aqrod area in Ta’iz.

The Yemeni forces also seized a large amount of the militants’ weapons.

Meanwhile, the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television reported that a Saudi airstrike hit the fishermen complex in al-Khawkhah city in the Yemeni province of al-Hudaydah on Tuesday, killing a civilian and injuring several others.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 231 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 6,921 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.
