Fighters of the Yemeni Resistance Movement Ansarullah seized control of an area in Yemen’s Jawf province after engaging in fierce clashes with al-Qaeda militants.
According to reports by Yemeni media outlets, the Ansarullah fighters flushed out al-Qaeda terrorists from Jabal Aqabah, North of Yemen, and gained full control over the strategic region.
The Ansarullah fighters and army troops have made major advances in their fight against the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists and forces loyal to fugitive President Mansour Hadi across Yemen in recent months.
The clashes between the Ansarullah fighters and the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists as well as the pro-Hadi militias continue in the Southern and Northern parts of the country as Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 81 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 4,578 civilians, mostly women and children.
