The Yemeni army and popular forces continued their advances in Dhale, and seized back a strategic town in the province’s Damt region.

The Yemeni forces took full control of al-Riashia town in Damt region of Dhale province, inflicting heavy losses on the Saudi-led forces.

The Yemeni army also hit hard the Saudi forces’ positions near Kofel military base in Ma’rib province, killing dozens of them.

Meantime, the Yemeni forces destroyed the Saudi military positions in Ta’iz province.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 302 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 8,000 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.

Over 3,750 schools have been closed and at least 1.2 million Yemeni people have been displaced so far.
