The Yemeni army and popular forces continued to push back the pro-Saudi forces from a strategic region and its nearby mountains located between Ma’rib and al-Bayda provinces.

The Yemeni forces took control of Qanieh region and the mountains overlooking it.

A large number of pro-Saudi forces were killed and wounded in fierce clashes with the Yemeni army and popular forces.

The Yemeni army also seized an arms and ammunition depot from the pro-Saudi forces.

Earlier on Sunday, a senior military commander announced that the Yemeni forces have pounded the missile bases of the pro-Saudi forces in the Southern part of Ma’rib province after taking control of Sarwah airport.

“The Yemeni forces still continue their advances in Ma’rib province despite the ongoing massive clashes and the continued Saudi airstrikes,” Senior Ansarullah Commander Ali al-Houthi told FNA.

He said that the Yemeni army and popular forces targeted and inflicted heavy losses on the pro-Saudi forces’ military positions in Ma’rib province after taking full control of Sarwah airport.

At least 30 pro-Saudi forces were killed in the Yemeni missile attack in Ma’rib.

Also on Sunday, the Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters continued their advances in Ma’rib province, and killed nearly a dozen pro-Saudi forces, including three senior commanders in fierce clashes.

Commander of Ma’rib military police, Abdullah Dahvan, and two other notorious commanders, Salih bin Mohammad Heit and Hassan Mohsen bin Qanaem, were killed in clashes with the Yemeni forces to the East of Wadi al-Hashiraj near the city of Sarwah in Ma’rib province.

At least seven other pro-Saudi forces were killed in clashes with the Yemeni forces and many others were also wounded.
