Moments ago, the Yemeni Army and their popular committees – led by the Houthis – imposed full control over the Al-Dhale and Al-Hajj Governorates of southern Yemen after a series of intense firefights with the Saudi-backed pro-Hadi militias and their allies.
According to battlefield reports from both the Al-Dhale and Al-Lahj Governorates, the Yemeni Army and the Houthis successfully bypassed the frontline defenses of the pro-Hadi militias and imposed control over several sites around these aforementioned provinces in less than 72 hours.
In conjunction with their advance in the Al-Dhale and Al-Lahj Governorates, the Yemeni Army and the Houthis are preparing to storm the imperative Al-‘Anad Airbase in Al-Dhale; this assault is expected to begin in the next few hours.
To add to the plight of the pro-Hadi militias, the Yemeni Army and Houthis have cutoff all roads leading to the provincial capital of Al-Dhale; this is likely to prompt Saudi-led Coalition warplanes to strike the anti-government forces in order to lift the siege.
The Yemeni Army and Houthis have reportedly captured five security checkpoints inside the strategic city of Damat in the Al-Dhale Governorate after forcing the pro-Hadi militias to abandon their posts and retreat to the eastern countryside of the province.
