Most of Naham freed from Houthi-Saleh rebels
The Yemeni army and pro-government Yemeni National Resistance forces today liberated most of the districts in mountainous region of Naham, north-east of Sanaa, from the rebel Houthi militia and forces loyal to now-ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh, a senior security official said.
The army and Resistance forces are combing the liberated areas and chasing remnants of the Houthi-Saleh rebels, the state Yemeni news agency quoted the chief of security of Sanaa Governorate as saying.
He noted that the rebels destroyed the bridges along the road to Furdat Naham in a bid to stop the advance of pro-government army and Resistance fighters.
Tens of rebels were killed, injured and captured and their military equipment were destroyed in the battles, the official added.
Earlier today, the Yemeni army and Resistance fighters regained control of a number of military posts in Naham after defeating the rebel Houthi-Slaeh militants and advanced closer to the strategic Furdat Naham military base.
