Moments ago, the Yemeni Army and their popular committees – backed by the Houthis – imposed full control over the strategic city of Qutabah in the Al-Dhale’ Governorate after the Hadi loyalists and the Saudi-led Coalition militants fled their military posts before the resistance fighters entered this site inside Yemen’s southern countryside.
The Yemeni Army and Houthis are currently on the offensive in southern Yemen, targeting the Al-Dhale’, Al-Lahj and Shabwa Governorates that are mostly controlled by the Hadi loyalists and their allies from the Saudi-led Coalition – the latter is comprised of Sudanese, Saudi and UAE soldiers that have not fared well against the resistance forces, primarily against the Houthis.
Yesterday, the Yemeni Army and Houthis began their heavy bombardment of the strategic Al-Anad Military Base; however, they held-off from storming this site, despite being in position to strike the Hadi loyalists and Saudi-led Coalition forces protecting this large base in the Al-Lahj Governorate.
Should the Yemeni Army and Houthis capture the Al-Anad Military Base, they will have access to the strategic port-city of Aden; this port-city was the scene of some of the fiercest battles in Yemen for the four months that it lasted before the Hadi loyalists declared victory in August.
The Al-Anad Military Base is the largest military installation in Yemen and its heavily fortified by the Saudi-led Coalition Forces that will likely not give up this site without a fight.
