Yemen’s army forces and Ansarullah fighters have managed to seize control of a series of strategic peaks and hilltops in the country’s central regions, pushing back the terrorists from the area.

Yemen's official news agency Saba said Monday that Yemeni troops, backed by Ansarullah Houthi fighters, recaptured al-Solb mountain ranges in Ja’dan region in the central Ma’rib Province.

The report said scores of militants were killed in the operation which saw Takfiri terrorists expelled from their positions in the area. It said army troops are now in full control of the heights. The advances put the Takfiri terrorists in overlooking outskirts in a vulnerable position as their hideouts could be targeted by Yemeni troops and Houthi fighters.

The capture of the heights also gives Yemen’s army troops better access to the road which connects Ja’dan region to al-Mansura city in Aden Province.

Saudi attacks continue

Meanwhile, Saudi warplanes continued pounding various areas in Yemen in a desperate attempt to stop the advance of Yemen’s allied forces across the country.

According to al-Masirah TV, Saudi bombers on Monday attacked areas in Lahej, Aden and Sa’ada provinces, killing scores of civilians and inflicting heavy damage on buildings, installations and places of gatherings.

Saudi border forces also launched artillery attacks on the building of the customs department in Hajjah Province, northwest of Yemen.

Reports say that the Saudi government has also decided to close the border crossing in the province's city of Hareth. According to Yemen Press, the unilateral decision came after tribal forces loyal to Yemen’s Ansarullah movement launched retaliatory attacks inside the Saudi territory. The report said the move left hundreds of people stranded.

Saudi Arabia started its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 -- without a UN mandate -- in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement, which currently controls the capital, Sana’a, and other major provinces, and to restore power to Yemen’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, who is a staunch ally of Riyadh.

According to the UN, since March, nearly 2,000 people have been killed and 7,330 injured due to the conflict in Yemen.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) says the Saudi aggression against Yemen has claimed the lives of more than 130 children over the past two months.
