Yemeni government forces, backed by the Arab Coalition, recaptured on Saturday a main airport in the strategic city of Hodeida, a major win in an ongoing campaign aimed at flushing Iran-backed al-Houthi militias from the Red Sea city.

The Yemeni army said that joint forces liberated the airport from Al Houthis and that engineering teams started clearing the facility from mines and explosives left behind by fleeing rebels.

“The armed forces which are supported by the Arab coalition has freed the Al Hodeida International Airport from al-Houthi militias and the engineering teams have started to clean the airport and its surroundings from mines and bombs,” Yemen’s military said on its official Twitter account.

Yemeni media posted images from inside the airport showing some of its amenities damaged due to the fight that erupted on Friday.
