The Compass – The Yemeni army announced, on Sunday, the liberation of the entire “Hais” district in the strategic Hodeidah Governorate (west).
And the media center of the Yemeni armed forces said in a brief statement: “The Hays district is completely under the control of the heroes of the joint forces (loyal to the government),” without other details.
This is the most prominent field progress of the pro-government forces in Hodeidah governorate for nearly 3 years, according to the Anatolia correspondent.
For days, violent confrontations have been taking place between the pro-government forces backed by the Arab coalition on one side, and the Houthi militia on the other, in several areas south of Hodeidah Governorate.
Yemen has been witnessing a war for nearly 7 years, which has killed more than 233,000 people, and 80 percent of the population, numbering about 30 million, has become dependent on support and aid, in the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, according to the United Nations.
The conflict has had regional spillovers, since March 2015, as a coalition led by the neighboring Saudi Arabia has carried out military operations in support of the government forces, in the face of the Iranian-backed Houthis, who control several governorates, including the capital, Sanaa.
