HODEIDAH, Yemen- Colonel Sadiq al-Duweid, Spokesman of the National Resistance in Yemen, emphasised that the Yemeni Resistance Forces, with the strong participation and support of the UAE's Armed Forces, operating within the Arab Coalition, have advanced to the outskirts of Hodeidah city, less than 15 kilometres from the city and 11 kilometres from its airport, in a qualitative and well-planned military operation, which deprived the Houthi militias, its ability to withstand and remain stationed on the ground, amid a mass fleeing of their commanders towards the mountains and a state of defeat and refraction in their ranks.

Al-Duweid added that the liberation of Hodeidah is in accordance with a military plan, which, members of the Houthi militias are not expecting. A crushing and overwhelming defeat awaits them on the Red Sea Coast of Yemen, against heavy military equipment with the participation and support of the Arab Coalition fighter jets, armoured vehicles, tanks and artillery, in addition to massive military reinforcements, in preparation for the final battle, to get rid of the militias and defeat the coup plan in Yemen in record time.

The spokesman of the National Resistance in Yemen noted that the participating forces worked in harmony and with high morale for the great victories on the Red Sea Coast Front and continue to do so.

The spokesman also pointed out that more than 93 elements of the Houthi militias were killed, including field commanders, who have been managing the battles during confrontations with the Yemeni Resistance Forces in the past 48 hours.

He added that the forces were able to capture dozens of members of the militia, and the Houthi leaders are sure that the coup is nearing its end, following the qualitative progress of the Arab Coalition and the Resistance Forces towards Hodeidah and its strategic port.

He indicated that Hodeidah city is currently staging a massive popular uprising against the Houthi militias and their terrorist practices.

''The people of Hodeidah are eagerly awaiting for the coalition and the resistance forces to liberate the city and rid them from the forces of tyranny and aggression,'' he stated.

He asserted that the mines planted by the Houthi militias will not deter the National Resistance Forces from advancing towards Hodeidah city and its port, both of which are now a stone's throw away.

The resistance forces, he noted, have seized large quantities of Iranian-made mines, munitions and weapons, which they found during the combing operations, after defeating the rebels who fled the battlegrounds en masse.

''The liberation of Hodeidah city will teach the Houthis a tough lesson through a surprise, decisive qualitative military operations, after destroying the militias' main defences and enforcement," he concluded.
