The Yemeni Army forces and fighters from the Houthi Ansarullah movement have full control over 85 percent of the territories of the war-stricken country, Al-Alam News Network reports.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency on condition of anonymity, the source highlighted the recent gains of Ansarullah forces in the fight against al-Qaeda affiliated militants as well as forces loyal to fugitive President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi inside Yemen.

"Ansarullah forces have taken control of 85% of Yemen, which includes the governorates of Sana'a, Amran, Hajjah, Sa'ada, Dhamar, al-Bayda, al-Mahweet, al-Jawf, Hudaydah and Taiz," he said.

The Houthi fighters are also fighting against the Saudi regime along the Yemeni borders.
