Yemen's armed forces and popular resistance fighters captured the air defence camp in Taiz province on Monday, following fierce confrontations with Al Houthi militia and the ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh group.

A Yemeni military source said that the captured air defence camp is strategic and on top of a mountain overlooking many areas on the western front of Taiz city.
