TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Forces of the Yemeni army and Popular Committees managed to advance against the Saudi-led coalition forces in the Arabian Peninsula country, retaking several areas in Shabwa Province from the Saudi regime’s mercenaries.

The Yemeni forces advanced in Asilan district in Shabwa, killing and injuring a large number of the Saudi-backed mercenaries and destroying their vehicles, according to a report by the Arabic-language Al Manar TV network.

The Yemeni forces also managed to seize their military equipment, including two vehicles.

Also, the missile command of the Yemeni army targeted the mercenaries’ positions in Lahij province south of the country late on Tuesday.

The Yemeni forces had previously targeted Saudi positions with ballistic missiles named “Qaher-1”, which has a range of 500 kilometers.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been launching deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

More than 10,000 Yemenis, including 4,000 women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.
