In the meantime, Arab Coalition Forces’ jets launched a series of raids on Houthi-controlled sites, targeting the rebels’ reinforcements, including their arms caches.

In addition, more than 20 Houthi snipers were killed after confrontations with Brigades al-‘Amalaqah on the mountains overcoming Al Barh, including field commanders, with large numbers of the coup perpetrators fleeing the area en masse.

Fields reports confirmed that the Brigades al-‘Amalaqah have gained full control over Mocha and Al Wazi’ya junctions in addition to the mountain range overlooking the main road where Al Houthi snipers were stationed. The bridges are continuing to tighten their noose on the militants who are fleeing the battle scene after sustaining heavy material and human losses.

Yemen’s Red sea Coast is witnessing large-scale battles on the Mocha Al Barah Junction, west of Taiz, over new areas, with the UAE Armed Forces, within the pro-legitimacy Arab Coalition, seeking to liberate the regions from the grip of the Houthis, secure the Red Sea Coast and lift the siege on Taiz from the West.
