Al-Arabiya correspondent reported that the Giants Brigades targeted the Houthi militia sites north of Harib, in light of the continuing clashes south of Marib, which resulted in the killing of 3 leaders of the Houthi militia on that burning front.
The brigades advanced towards the center of the city and reached the Al-Dharaan and Ikrima mountains, where hundreds of Houthi fighters who fled Shabwa are holed up.
For its part, the forces of the Yemeni army and the resistance were able to expel the militias from the ruling positions and large areas towards Aqabat Mala’a, south of Marib.
On Thursday, the Yemeni army forces, backed by the popular resistance and the coalition aviation, achieved new progress on the southern front in Marib, during battles that inflicted heavy losses on the Iranian Houthi militia in equipment and lives.

The coalition praised the heroism of the giants brigades and the UAE’s support for the “happy freedom of Yemen,” according to a brief statement.
The army forces and the Giants Brigades continue to advance on the southern fronts of the Ma’rib governorate, and have taken control of new sites in Aqabat Ma’la in the Harib district, and that 3 kilometers separate them from the strategic Umm Rish camp, according to field sources.
