The spokesman for the National Resistance Forces, “Guardians of the Republic”, and a member of the Joint Forces Command, Brigadier General Sadiq Doweed, announced today, Friday, that a military operation has been launched and tens of kilometers have been liberated in the governorates of Hodeidah and Taiz.
And he said in a tweet on his account on the micro-blogging site “Twitter”, which was monitored by “The Yemeni Scene”, that “the joint forces launch a military operation and, thanks to God and the determination of the honest men, are able to liberate the areas of “Al-Jabaleen, Jabal Ghazieh Al-Majjar, Saqm” and mountain ranges and strategic governing sites and tens of kilometers meters west of Taiz and south of Hodeidah from the clutches of the Houthi militia.
In the past hours, the joint forces made progress in several areas within the implementation of the repositioning plan, amid heavy losses for the Houthi militia in the Hays front on the administrative borders of the governorates of Ibb and Taiz.
The military media of the joint forces reported that a large-scale attack from several axes carried out by specific units culminated in clearing the areas (Saqm, Al-Mahajar, and Al-Jabalin) and strategic areas east, north and northwest of Hais, in which the Houthi militia has been stationed for the past 7 years.
He stressed the liberation and concentration of large areas of the targeted areas, while the Houthi militia fled after human and material losses in its ranks during the clashes and other artillery strikes by the joint forces and the fighters of the Arab coalition.
The military media distributed a video documenting part of the concentration of units of the joint forces in a strategic mountain range after its liberation.
Doweed had said, “The state of no peace and no war left by the Sweden agreement led to handcuffing the joint forces that inflicted severe defeats on the Houthi militia and were close to liberating the city of Hodeidah.”
Dowid pointed out that “the Stockholm Agreement put the joint forces in a defensive position, and hindered them from performing their national role in the battle to confront the Iranian expansionist project and its Houthi tools.”
He pointed out that “the continuation of such a situation was not feasible at a time when terrorist militias escalated their aggression against Yemenis in the governorates of (Shabwa, Al-Bayda, and Marib).”
The joint forces had launched the Golden Arch Battle to liberate areas south of Hodeidah and the countryside of Taiz Governorate.
