The Yemeni army backed by a Saudi-led military coalition captured three strategic sites in Yemen’s southwestern Al-Bayda province on Tuesday following clashes with Shia Houthi militiamen, according to military officials.

“After fierce fighting in Al-Bayda’s Mujammim Directorate that continued until noon, army forces managed to capture the Laban, Sheab al-Theeb and Al-Faqarah districts,” Army Colonel Mosaad al-Salahi, who also serves as director-general of the adjacent Nati Directorate, told Anadolu Agency by phone.

According to al-Salahi, the three districts are of considerable strategic value as they overlook the nearby Camp Fadha, which is considered a key Houthi stronghold in the region.

The army’s latest advances, al-Salahi said, had received air cover from Saudi-led coalition warplanes, which targeted Houthi concentrations deployed in the area.
