Yemen government forces liberated a large swathe of land in Maqbna district, northwest of Taiz governorate, after heavy clashes with the Iran-backed Houthis as the Arab coalition struck more militia sites across Yemen.

Backed by air cover from the Arab coalition, government troops pushed deeper into Houthi-controlled territory, retook the mountain chain overlooking Saqm in Shamir, the last of which was the strategic Qebna mountain.

The army also freed the villages of Hudaydah and Tufaili from the Houthi militia, reports Arab News.

Meanwhile, battles continue raging south of the city of Marib between the government-backed forces and the Houthi militia.
