Saudi-led coalition forces strategically advance in Yemen’s Saada

Arab coalition forces

Saudi-led coalition forces in support of legitimacy in Yemen have strategically advanced in Saada Governorate, the major stronghold of Houthis, local Yemeni sources revealed Monday. 

The sources said dozens of Iran-backed Houthi terrorists were killed in battles and airstrikes conducted by the Saudi-led coalition aircraft. 

 In a statement, the Yemeni Army said that its forces, backed by coalition aircraft, controlled some positions in al-Buqaa front in Saada Governorate, bordering Saudi Arabia. 

Yemen’s war has resulted in what the United Nations calls the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

As the coalition intensifies attacks on Houthis, the Shia militias have conducted attacks on Saudi Arabia from their mountainous strongholds in northern Yemen and have launched around a dozen ballistic missiles at the kingdom, all of which were intercepted.
