“The Ansarullah forces are pressing ahead with their military campaign against the terrorists’ strongholds and have so far inflicted major losses on the al-Qaeda terrorists and militias in various regions, particularly Hadramawt,” Abdullah al-Shatri told FNA.
He also said that that the popular fighters along with army troops are destroying terrorist-infested buildings and areas in Aden, adding that the Saudi-backed militants can no longer stand the popular committees’ fire power.
Al-Shatri went on to add that the Yemeni troops have also cut off key supply routes of pro-Hadi and Al-Qaeda militants in different areas in Aden.
The Ansarullah fighters and the army troops have made major advances in their fight against the al-Qaeda terrorists and pro-Hadi militias across Yemen.
The clashes between the Ansarullah fighters and the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists as well as the pro-Hadi militias continue in the Southern parts of the country as Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 27 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 2,785 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
Five Persian Gulf States — Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait — and Egypt that are also assisted by Israel and backed by the US declared war on Yemen in a joint statement issued on March 26.
