SANA’A – The Armed Forces and Popular Committees of the Republic of Yemen have dealt a severe blow to the forces of the Saudi-led invaders, when on Wednesday a massive Yemeni offensive routed Saudi militants from their positions in Hays district.
During the course of over seven hours, the Yemeni forces attacked Saudi positions in several areas of Hays, according to Yemen Press Agency reports. Dozens of Saudi-backed militants were killed during the attack, and the survivors fled from their positions, leaving the area to be liberated by the Yemeni forces.
Hays district is located in the south of Hodeidah district, around 130 km south of the port city of Hodeidah itself. The offensive casts serious doubts on Saudi claims that their forces are on the outskirts of Hodeidah city and in full control of the southern West Coast.
