Government forces reach Kilo 10 after violent confrontations to control the main entrance of Hodeidah

The south-east of Hodeidah witnessed violent confrontations during the past night and violent and intense attacks by the Arab coalition Apache fighters.

Al-Masdar Online correspondent said that after the Apache fighters carried out an intensive sweep, the groups of Houthi fighters and their vehicles were targeted in areas leading east of Drihmi to Kilo 16.

The joint forces were able to reach the Kilo 10 area, about six kilometers from the Kilo 16 triangle, which is the most important entrance to the city of Hodeidah from both the south and east, linking it to the capital, Sana'a, and to the governorates of Taiz, Rima and Mahwit, which are areas of movement and concentration of Houthis militias.

According to the reporter, in the face of heavy blows to the Houthi artillery, the joint forces retreated from the highway to the farms along the road after their control on the road lasted about two hours.

During the overnight confrontations, dozens of dead and wounded were killed by the two sides, and the number of people killed by Houthi militants was raised by the involvement of Apache fighters in the confrontations.

During daylight hours, the region is witnessing a cautious calm in which the parties are preparing for a next round.

Al-Masdar Online correspondent said the al-Houthi group is massing its fighters in the direction of Kilo 10, and there have been significant reinforcements to the joint forces and the clashes are expected to erupt again to impose control on the public road.
