Yemeni Forces Win Back Key Regions in Hajjah Province

21 February 2016 15:04



The Yemeni army and popular forces seized back two strategic regions in Hajjah province which lies 130 kilometers Northwest of the capital.

The Yemeni forces are now in full control over Midi and Harz regions in Hajjah province.

Scores of Saudi forces were killed and wounded in the Yemeni forces’ attacks on their military positions.

In a relevant development on Saturday, the Yemeni forces seized back a strategic mountainous region in Jawf province.

The Yemeni forces took full control of Sheihat and Qarn Jad’an strategic heights that overlook Hazm city, capital of al-Jawf province.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 331 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 8,300 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.
