Yemen’s pro-government forces on Tuesday seized key ground in Hajjah province from Houthi rebels near the insurgents’ stronghold in Saada.

The gains came as Saudi Arabia shot down another ballistic missile fired from Yemen.

The missile, fired late on Monday night, was intercepted on a trajectory towards the Saudi city of Jizan. The Houthis said the missile was aimed at oil installations in the south of the kingdom.

The Shibh Al Himrayah and Shibh Al Hosia areas in the Haradh district of Hajjah were captured by highly trained Yemeni troops who entered the country from Saudi Arabia last week.

A Saudi Arabia-led coalition of countries, including the UAE, has backed Yemen’s government against the Houthis, who are aligned with former president Ali Abdullah Saleh.
