Yemen’s army regained control of strategic positions along the Al-Shouraijah front in Taiz following clashes with the Houthi militia, Saudi state-news agency SPA reported.

A high-ranking military source said the army launched heavy attacks on Houthi positions in Al-Shouraijah and Jabal Eshar.

“The army’s liberation of the sites will contribute to securing a number of vital roads, enabling the army to move forward easily,” he said.

The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen launched a military offensive in June to capture Hodeidah from the Houthis.
