Governor of Yemen’s Saada region Hadi Tarshan al-Waily stressed on Friday that the legitimate forces, backed by the Saudi-led Arab coalition, is determined to liberate the entire country from the clutches of the Iran-aligned Houthi militias, reported the Saudi Press Agency.

He told a meeting of tribal leaders from Saada, the Houthi stronghold, that the national army had captured Wadi Khab, Umm Naeera, Gharb Umm Sarouf, Jabal Tayban, Aaqabat Dhaher and Aaqabat al-Kharban from the Houthis.

He added that the legitimate forces will soon raise the national flag on top of the Miran Mountains.

Residents will soon enjoy peace, security and stability, he said.

The national army had made new advances in Saada’s Baqim district after waging fierce battles with the Houthis.

A special forces commander Meshaal al-Beyl said that the army liberated several areas close to the Jabal al-Masane and Jabal al-Aswad in Baqim, reported the September.net website.

The advances were successful after the army liberated all of the al-Maghram villages in Baqim.

It also seized the international route connecting Baqim to Alab.

Dozens of Houthis were killed and injured in the fighting.
