Yemeni army advances in al-Jawf as Houthis suffer significant losses
:: The Yemeni army has liberated new sites in Bart, north of Al-Jawf governorate, after heavy battles in the past week during which the Houthi militias suffered significant human and material losses, Al Arabiya English reports.
Staff Officer Maj. Gen. Col. Hazm Kharssan has asserted that the army managed to liberate areas where the Houthi militias were centered from Dahra to al-Qaeif in the Bart Anan Directorate, including al-Nabeia, al-Ashash and Rah.
Col. Kharssan said that the fighting that initially broke out at dawn on Saturday was still going amid steady progress of the armed forces with a large collapse within the Houthi militias’ ranks.
On the other hand, a Yemeni military source said on Saturday that there has been continuous advances from the military reinforcements on the Western coast, on land and sea, to the fighting locations in the southern coastline of Hodeidah.
The source confirmed the resumption of the operations focused on liberating Hodeidah and its ports from the Houthi militias.
The source added that the Houthi militias have been stubborn to withdraw from Hodeidah and have escalated their attacks on international ships, which has forced the army and the coalition to resume their military operations to liberate the strategic port city.
