BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 P.M.) – The Houthi forces have denied reports that the Gulf-backed troops have reached the Hodeideh Airport this afternoon, despite several claims from pro-government media outlets.
According to the official media wing of the Houthi forces, there have been no clashes near the Hodeideh Airport or most other places around the Hodeideh Governorate.
The Houthi forces added that the explosions heard in Hodeideh were a result of heavy airstrikes from the Saudi-led Coalition.
Earlier today, Sky News Arabia reported that the Yemeni Republican Guard and their allies had reached the southern entrance of the Hodeideh Airport after a fierce battle with the Houthi forces.
Since this report, several pro-government activists have claimed that the Yemeni Republican Guard has seized several parts of the airport, with some even claiming that the entire installation is under their control.
As of now, the situation is still unclear, as both sides report entirely different things.
