Baydha (Debriefer) - Forces of the Yemeni internationally-recognized government on Sunday made an advance in Qania frontlines, north the central governorate of Baydha, and retook control of sites seized by Houthis last week.
Backed by tribesmen and Arab coalition aircraft, the "army and resistance forces purged a number of sites where Houthi forces situated in Qania," the Riyadh-based Saba quoted the Yemeni armed forces' media center.
Fighting coincided with coalition air raids that targeted Houthi sites, destroyed reinforcements en route to the frontline and inflicted the group gross losses in other sites, the center added.
"After the battles, vehicles were seen transporting bodies of Houthis killed by the army and resistance heroes and coalition airstrikes."
Last week, the Houthi group said it seized "some 400 km of area" in Marib and Baydha governorates.
