BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 P.M.) – The Saudi Coalition and their Yemeni allies managed to retake several districts from the Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in the southern region of Yemen on Monday.

According to the military commander of the pro-government Yemeni Army, their troops and the Saudi Coalition captured 15 districts that were occupied by the Al-Qaeda forces in the Shabwah Governorate of southern Yemen.

The Yemeni Army said that their forces eliminated a large number of Al-Qaeda fighters during this cleansing operation.

Al-Qaeda has been active in the Shabwah Governorate for much of the war; this has prompted the pro-government forces in southern Yemen to take action against the terrorist group.

It was an agreement between AQAP and the Saudi Coalition, there is no military offensive from the Saudi backed troops on territories under AQAP control.

AQAP is a part of the Saudi Coalition, they are helping them to fight the Houthis in the Al Bayda governorate and in the southern provinces, Leith Aboufadel is a f*****g arab muzz lier. AMN = FAKE NEWS.
