BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 P.M.) – The UAE-backed forces continued their military operations along the western coast of Yemen, today, targeting several areas controlled by the Houthis.
Led by the Southern Resistance Army and Yemeni Republican Guard, the UAE-backed forces captured the strategic Tuhaytah area near the Hodeideh provincial border.
It took the UAE-backed forces nearly a week to capture Tuhaytah, as the Houthis refused to concede the area without a fight.
In addition to their advance at Tuhaytah, the UAE-backed forces also managed to capture to several points in southern Hodeideh this morning after a fierce battle with the Houthis.
The UAE-backed forces are now working to strengthen their supply line around the Hodeideh Governorate.
Once they are able to secure the strategic highway along the coast, the UAE-backed forces will likely make another major push to capture Hodeideh from the Houthis.
