Reports: Saleh-allied forces gain control of Sanaa Airport from Houthis


Forces affiliated with Yemen’s General People’s Congress (GPC) have gained "complete control" of the Sanaa Airport from the Houthi militia, an Al Arabiya correspondent reported on Saturday.

This comes as fierce clashes took place between the Iran-backed militia and the forces loyal to deposed president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Sanaa has been under Houthi militia control since 2015, in a move described as a coup by the legitimate Yemeni government backed by Saudi Arabia and a coalition of Arab countries.
