Dozens of people have been killed as Houthi Ansarullah fighters put up resistance against Saudi-backed militiamen loyal to resigned Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in the southwestern province of Ta’izz.

An unnamed medical official said skirmishes raged in the Red Sea port city of Mokha, situated 346 kilometers south of the capital, Sana'a, over the past 24 hours, leaving 20 Ansarullah fighters and seven pro-Saudi gunmen dead. Dozens more sustained injuries as well.

A pro-Hadi militia commander asserted that Houthis are still in control of the city center, while Saudi-sponsored armed men have taken up positions on three axes around Mokha and wrested control over the road linking the coastal city to the provincial capital city of Ta’izz.

Nearly 230 people have reportedly died ever since Hadi loyalists launched an offensive on January 7 to recapture Mokha from Ansarullah fighters.
