The Yemeni Armed Forces and Popular Committees managed on Wednesday to take control of Al-Juba directorate in the south of the strategic city of Marib.
Moreover, Yemeni sources reported that the local authorities in Murad area in Marib have restored peace and security.
The spokesman of the Yemeni armed forces, General Yahya Sarea announced that the campaign inflicted heavy losses upon the mercenaries, hailing the role of the tribesmen in the military advance.
The Yemeni forces’ field progress comes in the context of a major campaign to liberate Marib city from the Saudi-led mercenaries.
Yemen has been since March 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition. Tens of thousands of Yemenis have been injured and martyred in Saudi-led strikes, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
The coalition has been also imposing a blockade on the impoverished country’s ports and airports as a part of his aggression which is aimed at restoring power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.
Meanwhile, Yemen is home to the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, with at least 7 million people on the brink of famine and hundreds of thousands suffering from cholera.
