Yemeni forces and loyalists to President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi regained control of Aden airport from Houthi militias on Thursday, as a Saudi-led military operation continued to target the Shiite rebels, the Al Arabiya News Channel reported citing sources.

Saudi Arabia, along with 10 other countries, launched a military operation against the Houthi militia late Wednesday.

Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi is currently in the southern city of Aden where he has held court since fleeing house arrest in Sanaa earlier this year.

The Saudi-led operation Decisive Storm saw a series of airstrikes on Houthi-held targets which reportedly killed a number of the Shiite militia’s military commanders.
