MANAMA (Sputnik) — Under the plan, two separate units totaling some 2,000 ground forces along with the Saudi-led coalition's warplanes will liberate the cities of Taiz and Marib before heading to the capital.
"Forces loyal to political legitimacy [pro-Hadi] have laid down a strategy, in coordination with the [Saudi-led] coalition [targeting the Houthis in Yemen], which will come into effect in the coming days. The plan comprises liberating a large part of the territory currently under the control of the putschists," Subaihi said as quoted by the pan-Arab Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper.
In late July, Yemeni Prime Minister Khaled Bahah declared Aden, the second largest city in the country, liberated from Houthi rebels.
Since late March, the Saudi-led coalition of Arab states has been launching airstrikes against Houthi positions in Yemen at the request of the Yemeni president-in-exile.
The conflict in Yemen has claimed the lives of at least 1,900 civilians and more than 4,000 have suffered injuries, according to the United Nations.
