BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 A.M.) – The Gulf-backed troops are making another serious push to capture the strategic Hodeideh Airport from the Houthi forces in west Yemen, pro-government activists reported this morning.
Led by the Syrian Resistance Army and Yemeni Republican Guard, the Gulf-backed troops stormed the last remaining sites located south of the Hodeideh Airport.
No gains have been reported yet.
Should the Gulf-backed troops capture the Hodeideh Airport, they will be within distance of the provincial capital and its strategic port.
The Hodeideh Port is the last major port that is under the control of the Houthi forces in west Yemen.
If lost, the Houthi forces will find themselves under a land, sea, and air siege that is imposed by the pro-government troops and Arab Coalition.
