ADEN, 11th May, 2018 (WAM) — In yet another military achievement against the Iranian-backed Houthi militias, troops of the Yemeni National Resistance, Tehama Resistance, the Al-Amalaqah Brigade, with the support of the UAE Armed Forces, have carried out an offensive against militia positions on the road leading to the Yemeni directorates of Al Jarrahi and Zubaid.
The national forces, with the help of the UAE military, regained control of the areas, expelling Houthi militias who suffered successive defeats and heavy losses in both equipment and lives.
The resistance forces were able to penetrate Houthi front lines in a qualitative military operation, forcing them to retreat under a barrage of fire and an intensive air cover carried out by Arab Coalition jets targeting their military reinforcements.
The Yemeni National Resistance, Tehama Resistance and the Al-Amalaqah Brigade continued their field advances and successive victories along the Red Sea Coast fronts.
Field sources said that the Houthis are witnessing rapid collapses in their ranks with rebel fighters abandoning their weapons and equipment, and fleeing the battlefield in their masses.
They added that the resistance forces succeeded in achieving significant and accelerated victories, regaining control of strategic areas from the militias.
