Yemen’s army regain control of areas in Shabwah

YEMEN-CONFLICT

From Al Arabiya English:

“A Yemeni military official said that in the past two days, the army and popular resistance forces have regained control of posts which Houthis and forces loyal to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh were in control of in the governorate of Shabwah.

Ahmad al-Qili, the commander of Al-Hazm brigade, said the army is advancing in the areas of al-Saq and al-Safha adding that it also blocked the Bayhan path which linked between Shabwah and Marib and which the Houthi militias used to smuggle weapons and drugs.

Meanwhile, the army’s engineering teams said they removed 600 mines which rebels had planted around the city of Bayhan in the Shabwah governorate.”
