BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – Saudi-led coalition forces have reportedly taken control of strategic parts of the Kilo 16 highway between Hodeidah and Yemeni capital Sana’a on Saturday.
Footage shows foot soldiers and tanks progressing on the road which leads to Houthi-controlled Hodeidah.
According to Yemeni Giant’s Brigade forces, advances on Kilo 16 have come after they seized control of Kilo 7 and 10 in the past two days, closing in on the city’s Arc de Triomphe landmark.
Clashes have been ongoing since UN-mediated peace talks in Geneva collapsed earlier this month, due to the absence of the Houthi delegation.
