Sharif Hassan, the spokesman of the group, told FNA on Tuesday that the popular forces had seized a large cache of US-made weapons during their operations against al Qaeda in the province and used them against the Saudi and UAE forces.
Yemen’s army and Ansarullah fighters had on Sunday regained control over several strategic sites in an area in the Yemeni Province of Ma’rib.
The Yemeni forces retook control of a number of sites in Kofel area in Ma’rib, informed sources said.
Meanwhile, the Yemeni forces thwarted attacks by the Saudi-led coalition forces and militants loyal to the fugitive former Yemeni President, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, in the same province.
Also, the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television said on Saturday that the Yemeni army and popular committees repelled several attacks by the Saudi-led coalition forces and pro-Hadi militants on Sirwah district in Ma’rib.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 230 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 6,920 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
