BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – The Yemen Civil War is entering its fourth year and the country still remains divided both politically and militarily.
Despite a ceasefire in the Hodeidah Governorate, Yemen witnessed heavy clashes throughout the month, with both the Houthi forces and pro-government troops trading attacks along the Yemeni-Saudi border.
In particular, the Saudi-led Coalition and their allies have managed to capture several points along the Yemeni border, forcing the Houthi troops to fall back towards the provincial capitals of Hajjah and Sa’ada.
The Saudi-led Coalition is working to fully restore security along the Yemeni border; however, the Houthi forces have made it difficult for the pro-government troops to capture their positions near the Asir and Jizan provinces.
With most of the fighting concentrated along the border, western Yemen has experienced its first month of relative peace, despite the occasional exchange of hostilities in Hodeidah and Ta’iz.
