More than 23 members of the Houthi militia were killed and others were detained in battles in As Sawadiyah District in Al Bayda Governorate.
The Yemeni army said on its website that it launched a violent attack on the Houthis’ posts in Khadar, al-Shabka and al-Yasbel and managed to seize control over some posts.
It added that the Houthis left the bodies of dozens of their fighters in the area.
The army also damaged several of the Houthis’ military vehicles and seized different types of weapons and ammunition.
The battles are ongoing and the Houthis’ losses will continue to increase, it also said.
This comes after the army advanced in Al-Malham front, east of Al-Bayda.
Meanwhile, the Yemeni army in the Taiz front and under the Arab alliance’s air cover has managed to strategically advance southeast of the city. It liberated Ozla Hawmera following a quick operation during which it also seized heavy weapons and gear the Houthis possessed.
On the west coast, media outlets affiliated with the Houthis said the latter mobilized fighters to fronts there in an unprecedented manner, in a response to their leader Abdulmalik al-Houthi’s call to prepare to any possible military escalation in the next two days.
As battles intensify on more than one front, Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi said the battle against the militias is almost over and victory is near. He added that peace will not be achieved unless the coup ends and the political path is restored.
