  • Saudi-led coalition receiving heavy blow in Yemen’s al-Bayda: Ansarullah

A spokesman for Yemen’s Ansarullah movement says the Saudi-led coalition is receiving a heavy blow in al-Bayda amid territorial gains made by the Yemeni army and allied Popular Committees in the central province.

“Once again and thanks to God, the enemy is receiving a painful blow in al-Bayda,” Mohammed Abdulsalam said in a tweet on Wednesday.

Abdulsalam, who is also the chief negotiator of Ansarullah, noted that the United States had sent Takfiri terrorists to the province, but it was “shocked by their rapid defeat” and raised its voice in demand for peace.

“In this round, the American [the United States] will wake up to the impact of a greater disappointment and therefore a greater scream as a result of the collapse of his mercenaries in al-Bayda.”

On Wednesday, Yemeni forces continued to gain ground in al-Bayda, taking control of military positions belonging to Saudi-backed militants in the province.

Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen television network reported that battles are ongoing on the fronts of al-Jarybat and Fadha in al-Bayda as well as the southeastern province of Shabwa.

Last week, the spokesman for Yemen’s Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said Yemeni forces had killed 350 Takfiri terrorists, including members of Daesh and al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), as part of the Operation al-Nasr al-Mobin (Manifest Victory) in al-Bayda.
