BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:55 P.M.) – The Houthi forces launched an important offensive earlier this week to capture a key district in the Dhale Governorate of Yemen.
Backed by heavy drone and artillery strikes, the Houthi forces stormed the strategic Husha District in a bid to expel the pro-government troops from this area of Yemen.
According to the official media of the Houthi forces, their fighters managed to capture the Husha District after overrunning the pro-government troops on Tuesday.
Since capturing this district, the Houthi forces have secured the area and begun clearing nearby hilltops in order to avoid any potential counter-attacks from the pro-government troops.
With the Hodeidah Governorate under a U.N.-led ceasefire, the fighting in Yemen has moved to the central and northern part of the country.
Most of the fighting as of late has taken place along the Saudi border as Coalition-backed forces attempt to capture the Hajjah Governorate in northern Yemen.
