Commander: Ansarullah Takes Full Control of New Areas in Ta’iz Province
“Ansarullah forces are now in full control of special regions in Ta’iz province,” Ansarullah Commander Abdullah al-Zeidi told FNA on Monday.
He, meantime, said that the Yemeni army and popular forces have reached an agreement on setting up a joint operation room in Ta’iz province in a bid to respond to any ceasefire violation by the Saudi-led coalition forces.
Al-Zeidi said that the main purpose for setting up joint operations room is to complete the Bab el-Mandab Strait operations.
In a relevant development in April, a senior Yemeni military commander disclosed that the Arab country’s popular forces had won back all regions in the Northern and Western parts of Ta’iz province.
“Our forces are now in full control of all regions in the Northern and Western parts of Ta’iz province after heavy clashes with Saudi-led forces and al-Qaeda terrorists,” Ansarullah Commander Hesham al-Zeidi told FNA.
Al-Zeidi said that Ansarullah targets the al-Qaeda terrorists with short-range missiles, adding, “The Yemeni popular forces killed four terrorists and destroyed tens of their armored vehicles while they were pulling out from Ta’iz province.”
Meantime, a military source disclosed on Saturday that the Yemeni army and popular forces withdrew from the city of al-Waziya in the Southern part of Ta’iz.
