The Yemeni army and popular forces continued their advances in Shabwah province on Monday, killing a dozen Saudi-backed mercenaries, including a senior commander. “At least 12 Riyadh-backed militias, including Hamdan al-Nahmi, commander of the Fourth Battalion of forces loyal to the former fugitive President Mansour Hadi were killed in al-Saq region of Shabwah province,” the Arabic-language media quoted a military source as saying on Monday. He said that the Yemeni forces also beat back the Saudi-backed mercenaries who were trying to advance in the town of al-Qayl in al-Jawf province.
In a relevant development earlier on Monday, the Yemeni army and popular forces targeted and pounded the Saudi-backed mercenaries’ military positions in the capital city of Sana’a, killing and injuring several of them. The Yemeni forces’ attacks on the Riyadh-backed militias in Sana’a's Ninth District came in retaliation for the kingdom’s continued airstrikes on civilians in the neighboring country. The Saudi regime’s attacks on residential areas and infrastructures of Yemen still continue.
Also on Monday, the Yemeni army and popular forces continued their advances in Ta’iz province in Western Yemen, killing and injuring tens of Saudi-backed mercenaries in fierce clashes. At least 250 militias loyal to former fugitive President Mansour Hadi were killed in fierce clashes with the Yemeni army troops and popular forces. Moreover, over 400 other Saudi-backed mercenaries were injured in tough battle in Zobab and Kahboub regions of Ta’iz province.
In a relevant development on Sunday, the Yemeni army and popular forces repelled massive ground attacks by the Saudi-led coalition troops, backed by aerial and naval support, on Zobab and Kahboub regions of Ta’iz province. “The Saudi-led coalition soldiers staged large-scale attacks on Zobab and Kahboub regions in Western Ta’iz, but despite having the aerial and naval backup of the coalition they were pushed back by the Yemeni forces,” the Arabic-language al-Ahd news website quoted an unnamed Yemeni military source as saying. The source noted that the Yemeni army and popular forces destroyed 15 military vehicles of the Arab coalition and destroyed the coalition’s military positions in the surrounding areas of Kahboub and Zobab regions.
Also on Sunday, the Yemeni army and popular forces continued their advances against the Saudi-backed militias in several fronts in Ta’iz province and seized back more strategic regions. The Yemeni forces seized back several districts in Jabal al-Anin region of Ta’iz province. The Yemeni army and popular forces also advanced against the Saudi-backed militias in al-Mazabi region in the town of Maqbaneh in Ta’iz province.
