BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – The Saudi Coalition and their allies from the Yemeni Army scored a new advance in the Al-Bayda Governorate of central Yemen on Friday.
Backed by heavy airstrikes, the Saudi Coalition and Yemeni Army managed to overrun the Houthi forces’ defenses in the Baqim District, resulting in the capture of the small town of Bustan.
Furthermore, the Saudi Coalition and Yemeni expanded their control over several farms and hilltops that are located around the town of Bustan.
The Saudi Coalition and Yemeni Army are now advancing further into the Al-Baqim District as they look to fully expel the Houthi forces from the Al-Bayda Governorate.
While a number of agreements were made in Sweden between the Yemeni warring parties, the ongoing conflict in the northern and central parts of the country have recently intensified.
The Saudi Coalition is currently attempting to capture several areas from the Houthi forces before any significant ceasefire is established inside of Yemen.
