BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – Coalition forces backed by the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia were seen consolidating positions some five kilometres (3,10 miles) from the Hodeidah Airport, as footage filmed in Mandar on Wednesday shows.

Large areas of the Hodeidah airport were reportedly captured from Houthis by the Arab coalition earlier this month.

The Saudi-led coalition intervened in war-torn Yemen in March 2015, in a bid to reinstate the government of ousted President Abd-Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.

The Saudi-led war in Yemen started in 2015 as an attempt to crush Houthi rebels in the region and reinstall former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

UAE is also cooperating to restore Hadi’s power. The conflict has created a dire humanitarian situation in the country.
