“The Yemeni popular forces killed at least 32 terrorists and militias loyal to Mansour Hadi in Ma’rib province,” a military source told FNA on Sunday.
Meantime, the Yemeni army and popular committees foiled another attempt by the terrorists to penetrate into Ma’rib province.
“The Yemeni forces have vowed to kill terrorists or push them out of Ma’rib province,” the military source said.
On Friday, a military source said that at least 55 troops of the Saudi-led coalition were killed or wounded in the Yemeni army’s operation in Ma’rib.
The military source said that, in addition to the killing and wounding of nearly 55 soldiers of the Saudi army and it allies by the Yemeni army, over eight military and 5 armored vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition were destroyed in the vicinity Al-Balaq, Thaat Al-Ra’ and Marbat Al-Dam in Ma’rib during the past few hours.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 193 days now to restore power to Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,433 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.
