Yemen’s armed forces spokesman Brig. Gen. Abdo Mugali on Wednesday in a press briefing reviewed the latest military operations in various battle fronts against the Iran-backed Houthi rebel militia.
He said that the armed forces, the resistance and tribesmen are carrying out offensive operations against the Houthi militia. “The army has made progress and control in several locations south of Marib, particularly the areas of Allafa, Mala’a and their neighborhood, where Houthi militias were stationed,” he said.
Dozens of Houthis militants, including field leaders, were killed, injured and captured, destroying eight armored vehicles, seven combat crews and a number of equipment and weapons, he said.
“The Arab Coalition air force with several raids destroyed a 23 m/i cannon, two BMB vehicles, a weapons store, 10 armored vehicles and 11 combat kits carrying weapons, equipment and reinforcements for the Houthi militia,” he said.
Army artillery on the western fronts destroyed five armored vehicles and six combat crews, while the Arab Coalition air force targeted four armored vehicles and eight combat crews, he added.
In western Taiz province, the army launched a surprise attack on Houthi militia positions, recapturing important positions, killing and wounding dozens of Houthi militants, and destroying their combat vehicles.
On military operations in Behan and Asilan fronts in Shabwa province, Brig. Gen. Mugali said the army, backed by popular resistance and Arab coalition fighters carried out offensive operations against Houthi militias, destroying six combat vehicles and five crews carrying Houthi reinforcements.
“The army succeeded to liberate important areas east of the city of Al-Hazm, the capital of Al-Jawf governorate, retaking weapons and various quantities of ammunition,” he added.
