  • Yemeni forces liberate two districts in al-Bayda: Military

Yemen’s Armed Forces have announced the liberation of two districts in al-Bayda Province from the control of Takfiri terrorists backed by a Saudi-led coalition waging war on Yemen.

The spokesman for Yemen’s Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said in a statement on Friday that the Yemeni forces had completed the second stage of a military operation dubbed al-Nasr al-Mobin (Manifest Victory) in al-Bayda, liberating the districts of Numan and Nate’e and defeating Takfiri militants associated with the Saudi-led coalition.

Saree said the military operation had left hundreds of Saudi-backed mercenaries and Takfiri terrorists killed and injured, adding that the Yemeni forces had also captured a number of the militants and confiscated their weapons.

According to the spokesman, the Yemeni troops are about to purge the remaining areas in al-Bayda of the militants and most of the province’s districts are now under the Yemeni forces’ control.

He stressed that the Yemeni forces would continue with their operations unhampered until the end of the Saudi-led war and the liberation of all Yemeni territories.

On July 13, Saree announced that the Yemeni forces had launched the first stage of Operation al-Nasr al-Mobin to push members of al-Qaeda and Daesh out of their strongholds in al-Bayda.
