SANAA, Yemen, Yemeni government forces have recaptured two strategic villages from the Houthi rebels, in the northwestern province of Hajjah, a local security official said.

The fighting has killed at least 15 fighters from both sides, since the troops launched the attack on Friday, to retake the two villages of al-Hamra and al-Hallah, pro-government official said.

The ground offensive was backed by the Saudi-led coalition war planes, he added.

The Saudi-led coalition has been intervening in the civil war in Yemen since 2015, to support the internationally recognised government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, after the Houthi rebels forced him into exile and seized Yemen's northern provinces, including the capital, Sanaa.
