The Yemeni army has made significant progress in the province of Saada, where it has taken over strategic positions, supported by the Arab coalition, which is a heavy loss for the Houthi militias.
On Sunday, the Yemeni army, with the support of coalition aircraft, fought fierce battles in the mountains of Saada’s Kataf district, the stronghold of the Iranian-backed Houthis, which lasted for more than ten hours. This resulted in the liberation of multiple areas in the province, with Yemeni reports indicating that the Yemeni army inflicted heavy losses upon the Houthis, who lost many lives and weapons on the slopes of the mountain.

The airstrike resulted in a number of deaths and injuries among the Iranian-backed Houthis, as well as the destruction of weapons belonging to them.
Yemeni reports pointed out that about eight Houthi snipers and more than 30 others were killed by the army and coalition aircraft.
The road between Saada and Al-Jawf was also liberated, which is a strategic victory. The Yemeni army has managed to secure this line between the two provinces in full so that the Houthis cannot target citizens as they travel along this road.
The Yemeni army, backed by the Arab coalition, made a strategic and important breakthrough by reaching the first districts of Al-Jawf from the province of Saada on Wednesday.
“The Yemeni forces’ victory in Saada is a strong boost to the continuation of the war against the militias and the overthrow of militia strongholds, which is a major moral blow to the Houthis,” said Yemeni political analyst Abdul Karim al-Medi.
The Yemeni army in Saada, backed by the Arab coalition, confirmed that everyone in Yemen are determined to uproot Iran’s arm from the country, he added.
Medi said that it is the year of victory and will make history by marking the end of Iran’s presence in Yemen and the return of the country to its natural position among its brothers in the Gulf and Arab world.
