Yemeni Forces Regain Control of Strategic Area in Hajjah Province

The Yemeni army said they have regained control of a strategic area in Hajjah province on Friday morning, vowing to continue fighting against the “aggressors.”

Almasirah news agency reported that the Yemeni army and popular committees would continue to advance against “aggressors and their affiliated elements on various fronts of Yemen.”

“Yemeni forces have made a lot of achievements and progress against militants associated with Saudi Arabia’s aggressor coalition,” according to the outlet.

The outlet also reported that the Yemeni army also took control of the strategic Al-Hathira area during a full scale operation in Al Hudaydah province.

Yemen’s Armed Forces Spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Saree had recently announced that the Yemeni army had shot down an US drone during an operation in Hajjah province.

However, the Iranian-backed Yemeni Houthis have recently intensified cross border attacks against Saudi Arabia and UAE, prompting both the Gulf States to accelerate air bombardments against Houthis position in Yemen.
