The Yemeni forces managed to purge terrorists from the Midi region in Western Yemen, killing scores of Saudi forces and taking 8 of them as captive.
At least 5 military vehicles of the Saudi troops were destroyed in the Yemeni forces’ attack on their 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.
