عدن نيوز – AdenNews :

Battles have raged in at least four Yemeni governorates during the past few days, as the Houthis are trying to reach the strategic city of Marib from three axes, according to official and military sources.

The sources said that the Houthis attacked in the governorates of Al-Bayda, Marib and Sanaa in the center and east of the country, while the Yemeni army attacked in Al-Jawf governorate in the north of the country.

The sources said that the battles in Marib Governorate continued in more than one direction, as the Houthis have been attacking with a huge human force for days.

On Tuesday, a military source told government-affiliated media that dozens of Houthis surrendered to the Yemeni army after they were besieged at the Al-Makhdara front, west of the Serwah district in the Ma’rib governorate.

Government forces are fighting in Serwah, with reinforcements from the Ma’rib tribes.

A military source said that the Houthis are trying to reach the Marib Governorate from three sides, the first in Serwah, the second from Al-Bayda governorate, and the third from Al-Jawf governorate.
