At least 70 Saudi-backed militants have been killed in an attack by the Yemeni army, backed by popular committees, on their hideouts in the southern province of Abyan, local media reports say.

According to Yemen’s al-Masirah television network, fighters of the Houthi Ansarullah movement and allied Yemeni army units managed to kill several militants fighting for Yemen’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, in the city of Zinjibar, the capital of Abyan, on Saturday.

The militants, backed by Saudi air cover, were repelled and forced to retreat from the troubled region in the face of strong resistance by the Yemeni forces. Saudi warplanes reportedly conducted nearly 200 airstrikes to target military as well as civilian targets across the troubled region during the fierce fighting.
