Arab coalition forces
Yemeni legitimate forces have liberated a strategic mountain in western Taiz province, near al-Makha, from Houthi militias.

Yemeni troops managed to control the mountain, after trapping Houthis, who were stationed at it, and clashing with them, Al Arabiya news channel reported, quoting a military source as saying on Saturday.

The fierce clashes left several Houthi militants dead and injured, while the remaining others have fled the area, the source added.

Military engineering units have cleared dozens of mines and explosives that were planted by the militants in the vicinity of the mountain to obstruct the advance of the Yemeni army, the source further noted.
