Yemeni Forces Back on Track, Gain Ground in Taiz



The Yemeni army and popular forces regained control of new areas in the province of Taiz on Monday.

The Yemeni forces regained control of strategic areas, including military bases, in Jabel Jara and al-Nour city in Taiz, according to the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 173 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 5,847 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.
