HODEIDAH, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News / WAM - 15th Jun, 2018) With support and participation of UAE Armed Forces, the Joint Yemeni Resistance has reached the main Roundabout at the entrance of Hodeidah city following confrontations that killed over 90 militants.
With this rapid advance, the city is now at the range of resistance fire.
Ninety six militia elements were killed in airstrikes conducted by the Arab Coalition and during confrontations with the resistance fighters amid major collapses in the militia's defences in the Hodeidah front, which saw the rebels sustaining heavy losses in personnel and equipment as a result of surprise and devastating attacks.
Attacks by thousands of resistance fighters on rebels' positions have also resulted in capturing tens of militiamen, including field commanders.
On the same vein, the Joint Yemeni Resistance forces are combing pockets of the militia in liberated areas in Hodeidah and cleared mines and unexploded ordnance planted arbitrarily by the rebels in a bid to hamper progress of the resistance.
Meanwhile, thanks to the UAE active participation and support, the Arab Coalition and resistance forces are advancing on multiple axes towards the Hodeidah after depleting the rebels' military and human capabilities in the a large-scale decisive operation to retake the Hodeidah city from the grip of the Iran-aligned Houthi movement.
With land, sea and air support by the UAE Armed Forces, the Arab Coalition and the Joint Yemeni Resistance forces began on Wednesday a decisive military operation to liberate Hodeidah city and its strategic port from the grip of the Iranian-backed Houthi militias, who rejected peaceful solutions. So far, strategic areas have been liberated and retaken from the rebels.
