Yemen: Yemen National Resistance, Al Amalaqah Brigade (Arabic for giants) and Tihama Forces have finalised preparations for a large-scale military operation to liberate the Governorate of Hodeidah in Yemen from the clutches of the Iranian-backed Al Houthi militias.
A joint operations room run by the Arab Coalition will see the forces coordinating their efforts, under support from the UAE Armed Forces, taking part in the Saudi-led Arab Coalition, to achieve a victory for Yemen and its people.
The announcement of preparations for the military operation comes on the heels of successive victories by Yemen National Resistance and Al Amalaqah Brigade in Al Barh front, driving out Al Houthi fighters from strategic mountain areas on the western entries of Al Barh city.
Supply lines cut
The Resistance forces managed to cut-off supply lines for the Houthi militias after gaining control strategic fronts.
A sources at the National Resistance said the launching of the campaign coincides with liberation of several strategic posts near Al Barh, which were used by the Houthis for smuggling weapons supplied by Iran.
The sources added that the Governorate of Hodeidah is home to one of the key ports on the Red Sea coast, which was used by the coup perpetrators for deliveries of weapons smuggled from Iran.
It was also used as a base to target international shipping at one of the world’s most vital waterways, the Bab Al Mandab strait.
He also said that the liberation of the Hodeidah Port, which will be achieved with support from the Arab Coalition and the UAE Armed Forces, will deal a crippling blow to the Houthi militias who once used it for their illicit operations.
It will also help cut-off their main artery for Iranian supplies of weapons that are used against the Yemeni people.
“Regaining the Port of Hodeidah will guarantee maritime security and importantly, will lead to drying up smuggling sources for the Iranian-backed militias,” the source added.
