CAIRO: Yemeni pro-government forces backed by Saudi-led airstrikes seized control of a military camp 60 km from Sanaa on Thursday, local officials and residents said, as troops advance toward the capital held by Iran-allied fighters.
Forces loyal to Yemen’s President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi are battling the Houthi movement and loyalists of the country’s deposed President, Ali Abdullah Saleh.
Pro-government forces seized the Fardhat Nahm camp outside Sanaa in battles with Houthi fighters that left a number of people dead and wounded, local officials and residents said, without giving precise figures.
Aircraft from the Arab coalition carried out dozens of strikes during the battles in the area, they said. The camp is located on one of the defense lines for the capital.
