The Yemeni army, backed by fighters from the Popular Committees, more commonly known as “The Houthis/Ansarullah”, have reached the eastern outskirts of the port city of Mocha, which in February was taken control of by forces loyal to the former president Mansour Hadi, and Saudi-led coalition forces.

According to earlier PressTV, media reports, several high-ranking pro-Saudi commanders were among those killed in a medium-range ballistic missile attack carried out by Yemeni forces on an area close to the strategic Bab el-Mandeb Strait.

The control of Yemen by pro-Saudi forces has for the most part been strictly limited to southern and eastern Yemen, and some areas along the Saudi border.
