On Sunday, the Yemeni Houthis militia took control of the strategic southern provincial capital of the Abyan Governorate after fierce clashes with the Al-Qaeda Front.

The Al-Qaeda stronghold of Zinjibar was stormed by the Houthis and declared under their control, despite the merciless aerial bombardment by joint Arab nations on the latter’s whereabouts in the country’s capital of Sanaa.

Houthis’ recent success in southern Yemen has resulted in their rapid expansion and influence in other cities inside the country, including the recently captured port city of Aden.

Saudi Arabia continues its initiative to consolidate and weaken the Houthis’ positions in Yemen’s capital; however, their air raids have been relatively inhuman, as the civilian population has suffered immensely as a result.

Recently, Saudi officials have hinted at the possible ground invasion of Yemen, along with a joint Arab coalition to destabilize the powerful militia and restore the exiled ‘Abed Rabbuh Mansour Al-Hadi as president of the country.
