Coalition jets drop leaflets to Yemenis north of Sanaa

Arab coalition warplanes flew over an area North of Yemen’s capital Sanaa on Wednesday and dropped leaflets asking residents to join the legitimate authority.

Yemen’s news network Masdar Online quoted residents in the Northern Al Jawf Governorate as saying several jets flew over residential areas and dropped leaflets.

“The leaflets urged residents in Al Jawf to oppose the coup rebels and join legitimacy in the country,” a resident told the network.

In a separate development, the national army and resistance fighters made more gains on the ground on Wednesday as they pushed ahead with their offensive to liberate the Southwestern town of Taiz, resistance sources said.

They said the fighters swept across Western Taiz and seized Al Kassara position, which has been under coup rebel control.

“The position is now under full army and resistance control…scores of Houthis were killed or wounded during the fighting,” one source said, adding that the allies are now around one km from Al Rahida city in Western Taiz.
