RIYADH, 12 days ago

Saudi-led Arab Coalition launched major air strikes killing 37 fighters from Iran-backed Houthi group in an operation aimed at controlling the centre of Al Tahita district in Yemen.
 
It was done in co-ordination with the Giants Brigades, part of the joint Yemeni Resistance Forces, reported state news agency Wam.
 
Dozens of Houthi militia elements were captured by the forces in a large operation against their hideouts. Other militia fighters fled, leaving behind their weapons, equipment and dead bodies, it stated.
 
The coalition's air strikes targeted several positions, gatherings and reinforcements belonging to Iran-backed Houthi militias in the areas around Zubaid district, inflicting heavy casualties among the militias ranks, said the Wam report.
 
The joint Yemeni Resistance forces combed large areas of Al Tahita district, and cleared mines and IEDs laid by the Houthis in a desperate attempt to delay the forces advancement, it added.
