Army engineering teams destroy 600 landmines planted by militia in Hodeidah
The national army forces on Tuesday, destroyed 600 landmines and improvised explosive devices, planted by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia in the province of Hodeidah, west of the country.
The national army engineering teams extracted these mines and improvised explosive devices from public roads, beaches and populated areas in various areas of the city of Hodeidah.
In late June, the national army forces destroyed large quantities of landmines and improvised explosive devices left by the Houthi militia in various districts in the same province.
The engineering teams continue their efforts to survey and clear populated areas and streets inside and around the city of Hodeidah from mines and improvised explosive devices.
The Houthi militia planted thousands of landmines and improvised explosive devices in populated areas and public roads in various areas under its control, which caused hundreds of civilian casualties, mostly women and children.
