Saudi-led coalition: 85 % of Yemen territory recaptured from Houthis


Saudi-led coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Maliki said Tuesday that 85 percent of Yemeni territories have been recaptured from Iran-backed Houthis.


Speaking at a press conference, al-Maliki added that Houthis jeopardize the world peace and work to destabilize the Gulf Region. 

He added the terror group had moved ballistic missiles to Saada with the help of Iranian authorities. 


Iran-backed Houthis attempt to overthrow the internationally-recognized government of President Abdrabbo Mansur Hadi. 

Earlier on Tuesday, the Yemeni armed forces backed by Saudi-led coalition killed seven Houthi terrorists and captured another in an offensive in Saada governorate.

A number of weapons, RPGs, a cannon and Kalashnikovs were also seized during the offensive.
