Yemeni sources have refuted rumors that the militiamen of al-Qaeda and fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mnasour Hadi had controlled the southern city of Aden.

The sources told al-Manar that fierce clashes are taking place between the militiamen and the army backed by the popular committees.

The militiamen were backed by intensified Saudi-led air strikes, the sources said, noting that the raids aim at achieving what the battlefield could not do.

“Al-Qaeda and Hadi militiamen did not advance but in the international airport. Elsewhere, the militiamen advanced towards the bridge in Khormakser, but they did not manage to enter the town as circulated by pro-Saudi media,” the sources said.

Meanwhile, dozens of al-Qaeda terrorists were killed near Aden International Airport, according to the sources.

The killed militants are from different nationalities, the sources added.
