Al-Labinat military camp

The Houthi group late on Friday said its fighters had fully seized the al-Labinat military camp from the Yemeni official army in the northern governorate of al-Jawf.

In an offensive operation, the Houthis took control of al-Labinat camp and the nearby hills, after massive fighting with the government troops, "tens of whom were killed or injured, including senior commanders," the Sana'a-based Saba reported.

"Houthi fighters started advancing towards [the higher and lower hills of] al-Marazeeq, after purging the whole city of al-Hazm," the Houthi-run agency quoted a military sources as saying.

Some two weeks ago, the internationally-recognized government declared control over vast parts of the camp, to the east of al-Jawf desert, in an operation aimed at retaking the areas recently seized by Houthis.
