BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 A.M.) – The Houthi forces have denied losing any part of the strategic Hodeideh Airport, despite contrasting claims from Yemeni pro-government media.
According to the official media wing of the Houthi forces, their troops are still in full control of the Hodeideh Airport after another battle with the UAE-backed Southern Resistance Army and Yemeni Republican Guard.
Contrasting the Houthi claims are several pro-government activists, including Sky News Arabia and other pro-Saudi media outlets.
Sky News Arabia has claimed that the Southern Resistance Army and Yemeni Republican Guard seized the southern and western parts of the Hodeideh Airport.
