Moments ago in the Marib Governorate of Yemen, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard – backed by the Houthis and other militias – imposed full control over Jabal Al-Malah (Salt Mountains) after an intense battle with the Hadi loyalists and the Saudi-led Coalition Forces.
In southern Yemen, the Al-Qaeda linked “Ansar Al-Sharia” and the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) forces have captured several sites in southern Yemen, including parts of the strategic port-city of Aden after turning on the Hadi loyalists that were once allied to them.
The Al-Qaeda and ISIS terrorists are now targeting several sites in Al-Lahj, Shabwa, and Aden as their presence in southern Yemen exponentially grows amid this turbulent time in the country.
Along the Saudi border with Yemen, the Houthis and Yemeni Republican Guard continued their large-scale offensive at the Saudi city of Najran, killing several combatants from the Saudi-led Coalition Forces while also seizing more military sites in the process.
If the Yemeni Republican Guard and Houthis can take control of Najran; this will mark the second Saudi city that they have captured since the Saudi-led Coalition Forces joined this war.
Exiled Yemeni president, Abd-Rubbah Mansour Hadi, has reportedly fled the port-city of Aden on Tuesday, citing health issues as the reason for his departure.
