BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:15 A.M.) – The Houthi forces, alongside the Yemeni Republican Guard, seized a key mountaintop overlooking the Mocha Port in western Yemen on Tuesday, forcing the Hadi loyalists and Southern Resistance fighters to retreat towards the coast.

According to local activists, the Houthi forces and Yemeni Republican Guard seized the strategic mountaintop of Jabal Al-Nar, killing and wounding several members of the Gulf-backed units.

This successful operation on Tuesday was meant to kick-start a new offensive by the Houthi forces and their allies loyal to former president ‘Ali ‘Abdullah Saleh.

The Mocha Port was captured by the Southern Resistance forces and Hadi loyalists during their major offensive late last year; this was the first time they seized this site since losing it to the Houthis.
