Coalition announces operation to liberate Yemen on all fronts after winning battle for Shabwa
Arab News says Yemeni government troops drove into Houthi-controlled areas south of the central city of Marib on Tuesday for the first time in months, a day after fully recapturing the strategic province of Shabwa from the Iran-backed militia.
In the wake of the victory in Shabwa, the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen launched a new military operation to liberate the whole country from the Houthis.
On a visit to Shabwa, coalition spokesman Gen. Turki Al-Maliki said the operation aimed to “purify Yemen” and establish safety, security, prosperity, and growth.
“Yemen deserves a lot in all areas,” Al-Maliki said in a joint press conference with the province’s governor, Awadh bin Al-Wazer.
