Yemen: After losses, Houthis make gains in Taiz

TAIZ,  (AA): Following a number of recent reverses, the Shia Houthi militant group has reportedly managed to capture a number of strategic positions from forces loyal to president-in-exile Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in and around Yemen’s southwestern city of Taiz.

The Houthis have succeeded in taking Al-Salih Gardens in Taiz, along with areas of the Al-Dabab Mountain region, according to an Anadolu Agency reporter.

A pro-Hadi source attributed the retreat from the latter region to a lack of military equipment, noting that Houthis forces in the area currently enjoyed an advantage in terms of supplies.

The Houthis, he said, had attacked pro-Hadi forces with tanks and artillery, leading to a “tactical retreat” by the latter.

Recent days have seen fierce clashes in the Al-Dabab Mountain region, which have left dozens dead from both sides.

Fighting is reportedly ongoing around the presidential palace, while Houthi forces have continued to attack pro-Hadi positions in the Thaabat and Sadr Mountain regions.
