Yemen forces capture military camp in Hodeida province

Yemen’s government forces have taken control of a military camp in the province of Hodeida ,a day after pushing the Iran-backed Al Houthis from Khokha region, military officials said on Friday.

Backed by intensive air cover from the Saudi-led coalition, government forces stormed Abu Musa Al Ash’ari military camp, north of the Red Sea Khokha on Thursday after fierce clashes with Al Houthi militants who fled to the mountains and other villages under their control.

Colonel Abdul Basit Al Baher, a spokesperson for the Supreme Military Council in Taiz, told Gulf News that government forces killed and injured dozens of rebels in the fighting. “ Due to its location, the camp is unique for bringing in military equipment from the sea.” Al Bahar said.
