Recently released HiDef footage of Yemen’s national army purportedly on the offensive, clearing Houthi positions in the grueling and jagged mountains. Violence continues in the tiny country on several crucial fronts as the deadly war continues to drag on.
Often referred to as the “Hadi” forces, Yemen’s government and military are currently under the command of Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi – who was ousted from the nation’s capital of Sana’a back in 2015 by the Houthi Rebels and has been subsequently supported by the Saudi-led coalition. Operations to reclaim territory have been ongoing for months but progress has been slowed by a stiff Houthi defense.
