Today, Friday, local sources reported that the Houthi rebels urged citizens in the capital, Sanaa, and the governorates under their control, to “reform the relationship.”
The sources told “The Yemeni Scene” that the mosque preachers showed their keenness on Salah al-Bin after their successive defeats in Marib Governorate, and the joint forces in Hodeidah turned the tables on them.
The sources indicated that the citizens did not give any consideration to the Houthi calls, but the calls turned into widespread ridicule, especially when remembering the houses they blew up and the tombs they created.
Yesterday, Thursday, large forces from the Giants Brigade led by Brigadier General Abu Zara’a al-Muharrami, and the infantry brigade led by the former Minister of Defense, Major General Haitham Qassem Taher, began a large-scale deployment outside its theater of operations in the West Coast region.
The withdrawals of these forces included the areas of Kilo 16, Al-Khoukha, Al-Durayhimi and Al-Jah, south of Hodeidah. Among the withdrawing military units were the First and Sixth Giants Brigades, while the Republic’s Guards forces led by Brigadier General Tariq Saleh took over all the sites instead of them, according to the same sources.
It is likely that the city of Aden will be the first destination for the withdrawing forces, to be redistributed later according to a plan coordinated with the Arab coalition that supports legitimacy in Yemen.
