VIDEO: Yemeni Army, Popular Forces Conduct Special Operations in Jizan, Asir

Tue Jan 26, 2016 16:55:32

The Yemeni army and popular forces continued their special operations in the city of Al-Khuba in Jizan province in Southern Saudi Arabia and seized back strategic military positions.

The Yemeni forces took full control of Al-Shabaka military center after cutting their supply lines in the Northern part of Al-Khuba region.

Taking control of Al-Shabaka military center and the Saudi forces’ supply lines in the Northern part of Al-Khuba are of highly strategic importance to both sides of war.

In Saudi Arabia’s Asir province, the Yemeni forces prevented the Saudi forces from advancing towards al-Rabou’a city for the second day. This is while the Saudi warplanes conducted over 350 sorties over Al-Rabou’a to back up the Saudi forces.

In a relevant development on Monday, the Yemeni army and popular forces thwarted an attempt by the Saudi-led coalition forces to prevail over the al-Rabou’a region in Asir province.

The Saudi troops launched an attack to take control of al-Rabou’a region which is under the control of the Yemeni forces, but they were pushed back by the army and popular forces.

The Yemeni forces also set fire to several military vehicles of the Saudi army.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 305 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 8,000 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

Over 3,750 schools have been closed and at least 1.2 million Yemeni people have been displaced so far, FNA reported.
