Yemeni Forces Take Control of Key Mountain in Ma’rib

21 November 2015 15:28


Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters and army troops took a strategic mountain in the Yemeni Province of Ma’rib from the Saudi-backed militants.

The Yemeni forces gained full control over Al-Ashqari mountain in Ma’rib, informed sources said Saturday.

Earlier reoports said the Yemeni forces fired rockets at a power station in Saudi Arabia’s Southwestern region of Jizan as the Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters continue to retaliate against the Persian Gulf kingdom’s aggression against their nation.

The Yemeni missiles pounded Baydah power station in al-Khubah area in Jizan region, sources said Saturday.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 241 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 6,938 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.
