The Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters continued their advances against the pro-Saudi forces across Yemen, and inflicted heavy losses on their military hardware, including a US-made Apache helicopter.

“Yemen’s air defense system destroyed an Apache helicopter in Najran region,” the Arabic-language media outlets quoted an unnamed source as saying on Monday, August 22, 2016

There are no further details available on the incident.

Earlier on Monday, a senior Yemeni commander announced that the Yemeni army and popular forces inflicted heavy losses and casualties on the pro-Saudi forces in Ma’rib, Ta’iz and al-Jawf provinces.

“Over 20 pro-Saudi forces were killed in an ambush of the Yemeni army and popular forces,” Senior Ansarullah Commander Ali al-Houthi told FNA.

Meantime, several Saudi forces were killed in an artillery attack of the Yemeni popular forces on their gathering center in the surrounding areas of al-Waziya region.

Several military vehicles of the pro-Saudi forces were also destroyed in the attack.

On Sunday, a senior Yemeni military commander announced that Yemen’s Dhale province is on the verge of being fully liberated as the pro-Saudi forces have sustained heavy losses and casualties in Ma’rib and al-Jawf provinces.

“The Yemeni army backed by popular forces purged terrorists from a large number of villages in the Southern and Western parts of Dhale province,” Yemeni Army Commander Brigadier General Abdollah al-Setri told FNA.

The Yemeni commander reiterated that seizing back of Dhale province will be a heavy blow to the Saudi-led coalition.
