Yemen’s Army Retakes Control of Several Sites in Marib

The Yemeni army said on Tuesday that they have wrested back control of several sites in south of Marib city from Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.

According to the army’s media center, the units of the army and resistance forces launched a massive attack against Houthi rebels positions, as a result liberated several areas of Yameen al-Raddah and al-Faliha.

A large number of Houthi rebels were also killed and wounded during the attacks, the army said, adding several of the group’s military vehicles were also destroyed.

At least 40 Houthi rebels were killed in operations to the west and south of Marib, Al Arabiya quoted a military source as saying.

Meanwhile, the army also said they had repulsed attacks carried out by Houthi rebels on their positions in Mala’a.

Houuthis, which is enjoying a great support from Iran, have recently intensified attacking not only the Yemeni army but also the Arab Coalition comprising the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

The two Arabic countries’ military intervened in Yemen after Houthi rebels managed to overrun the almost entire country and toppled the internationally-recognized government.   

Saudi defense officials had recently said they have intercepted a Houthis drone on the southern Saudi airport of Abah.

They also confirmed injuries of 12 people due to an intercepted drone falling into the airport premises.

Houthis have also launched unprecedented attacks on UAE in recent weeks, and the deadly one was on 17 of January when three foreign workers lost their lives while six more received injuries.
