BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:50 P.M.) – The Gulf-backed forces scored a big advance in the Al-Lahj Governorate of southern Yemen on Friday.
Led by the Southern Resistance Army and their allies from the Yemeni Army, the Gulf-backed troops began the day by retaking several points around the Al-Qabitah District of northern Al-Lahj.
Following this advance, the Gulf-backed troops managed to retake the large hilltop of Talat Al-Qinbas and several points surrounding it.
The Houthi forces were forced to abandon a lot of points between the Ta’iz and Al-Lahj governorates on Friday, as the Saudi-led Coalition repeatedly struck their positions in this part of southern Yemen.
The Gulf-backed troops are now working to secure the entire Ta’iz-Lahj axis before the Houthi forces send reinforcements to help retake this area.
