Houthi mines
Yemeni armed forces supported by the Saudi-led Arab coalition have destroyed 1500 mines planted by Houthi terrorists to target civilians, media outlets said on Sunday. 

The mines in the Midi region in Hajjah Governorate were de-mined by the Yemeni military's engineering teams. 

Houthi militias and forces loyal to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh planted the multi-purpose mines on farms, roads and other areas, the media office of the sixth military region said.

Since 2015, the Arab coalition has been launching an offensive to oust Iran-backed Houthis from Yemen. 

Houthis seek to overthrow legitimate president Abdrabo Mansur Hadi.
