Ansarullah Gain More Ground against Saudi-led Militants in Yemen’s Ma’rib
By Staff, Agnecies
Fighters from Yemen’s Ansarullah revolutionary movement gained more ground against Saudi-led militants in the oil-rich Ma’rib Province.
Yemen's al-Masirah TV channel reported on Friday that the Ansarullah, which have been defending war-wracked Yemen against the Saudi aggression, advanced west of the city of Ma’rib, retaking several sites from the Saudi-led militants loyal to former Riyadh-backed President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.
The Yemeni fighters, the report added, are currently on the western outskirts of Ma'rib, their first presence in the area since the start of the Saudi war in 2015.
The Ansarullah’s latest advance comes at a time that pro-Hadi militants attempt to capture areas they had lost in Ma'rib's neighboring al-Jawf Province.
The Yemeni forces launched an operation, dubbed al-Bunyan al-Marsoos, late last month in a bid to liberate the militant-held areas in Ma'rib and adjacent regions. The operation came after the Ansarullah managed to fend off an attack by Hadi’s loyalists in the Nihm district of Sana'a province.
Saudi Arabia and a coalition of its vassal states launched the war on Yemen in March 2015 in an attempt to reinstall the Hadi regime and eliminate the revolutionary movement.
Saudi Arabia’s military aggression, coupled with a naval blockade, has killed and injured hundreds of thousands of people, and plunged Yemen into what the UN says the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
