Yemeni army captures 160 coalition troops

Yemeni army captures 160 coalition troops
World  - The Yemeni army forces captured 160 Saudi-led coalition troops in the western coast until Saturday, Ali al-Emad, a member of Ansarullah political bureau, said on Sunday to Al-Mayadeen TV Channel.

"The prisoners were transferred to places out of Hudaydah city to protect them from the hostile air bombing," al-Emad added.

The statement came after the Yemeni army forces announced that they still control Hudaydah city in full, and are imposing a siege on the Saudi-led coalition troops, which tried to attack several areas of the city.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies, which attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, have recently launched a major attack to seize the Yemeni Al Hudaydah Port on the Red Sea. The port is the main way of providing the war-torn country with humanitarian aid. 

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly, indiscriminate airstrikes on civilians in Yemen. Over 14,000 Yemenis, including thousands of women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly Saudi aggression.
