DUBAI: The Yemeni army took control of Jabal Al-Ghunaimi east of Sanaa province in an operation on Saturday, Saudi state-agency SPA reported.
Saudi-led Arab coalition jets targeted Houthi troops in the area, a military source said.
Clashes continued between the Yemeni army and the militia, with the army making advances, the source added.
Fighting between the warring sides picked up this month after the Houthi militia were accused of refusing to implement a UN-led peace deal in Hodeidah.
The US ambassador to Yemen said last month the Houthis were obstructing the deal, which would allow aid workers access to the area to distribute humanitarian relief to the 24 million in need.
The cease-fire agreement between the two parties – which was reached in Stockholm - was signed in December last year, but troops have not started the planned redeployment of Hodeidah.
