Yemen’s army has made significant gains across the country’s west coast, despite an unrelenting Saudi Arabian-led assault.
On Thursday, Yemen’s al-Masirah television network published a video showing the soldiers’ staging counterattacks against the positions of Saudi-led militants.
It reported that the army had managed to retake several strategic positions and hills along the coastline, adding that one counterraid had killed 15 of the mercenaries and injured 20 more in the Derihemi District in the area.
The retaliation led to the destruction of more than 12 military and armored vehicles along various frontlines, including six anti-mine Oshkosh vehicles.
The network added that “tens” of the mercenaries had died as the army foiled their advance in the al-Wazi’iyah District of Ta’izz Province, which lies in the extreme southern tip of the maritime stretch.
Another military vehicle was destroyed in a retaliatory strike that hit the vicinity of Saudi Arabia’s Najran region on the border separating the kingdom and the impoverished country.
