Yemen: Pro-Government Forces Advance Toward Sanaa

In Yemen, forces loyal to President Abd Rabboh Mansour Hadi backed by a Saudi-led coalition have advanced to within 40 kilometers (25 miles) of the capital of Sanaa, according to pro-government military sources, AFP reported Feb. 12. Pro-government forces took the district of Nihm, putting them within striking distance of high ground surrounding Sanaa's international airport. Controlling the mountainous terrain overlooking their approach will aid coalition troops in their push to retake the capital from Iran-backed Houthi rebels.
