Yemen: Yemeni forces launch a major offensive against Houthi rebels near Saudi border


Yemen government forces launched on Thursday a major military offensive to wrest the strategic Haradh city from Al Houthis in the northern province of Hajja near the border with Saudi Arabia.

The official page of the 5th Military Region on Facebook announced the offensive against the Iran-backed rebels and posted photos of the region’s commander, Major-General Ali Hamed Al Gushibi, inspecting the front-lines and soldiers firing heavy machines at Al Houthis positions.

The page reported that the troops launched the offensive from the Saudi side of the border and managed to recapture an old border crossing with the kingdom and stationed 2km from the city’s downtown.

Officials say capturing the entire city would calm part of the Saudi border as the rebels use Haradh as a launching point for shelling Saudi territories.
