Brigadier General Turki Al-Maliki, the official spokesman for the “Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen” forces, stated that the repositioning of coalition military forces and Yemeni forces affiliated with the Yemeni government in the area of operations was part of the coalition’s military plans, in line with the coalition’s military strategy to support the Yemeni government in its national battle on all fronts.
“Under the directives of the coalition’s Joint Forces Command, the joint forces on the western coast carried out the redeployment and repositioning of their military forces last Thursday, and the repositioning process was characterized by discipline and flexibility, according to what was planned and in line with the coalition forces’ plans,” Brigadier General Al-Maliki said.
The joint forces also made numerous sacrifices to restore the Yemeni state and put an end to the coup, after spending over three years in defensive positions and the disruption of the (Stockholm) Agreement by the Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militia, with over 30,000 violations of the agreement’s articles.
The leadership of the coalition’s joint forces recognized the importance of redeploying and positioning these forces for them to be more effective and operationally flexible in their participation in the Yemeni army’s national battle, as well as to ensure their safety and mobility in the area of operations.
Brigadier General Al-Maliki urged the UN and its Hodeidah mission to play a role in executing the (Stockholm) Agreement, as well as the international community to put pressure on the terrorist Houthi militia to fully comply with and implement the agreement’s obligations.
Within 24 hours, the Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen targeted 26 Houthi militants in Marib and Al-Bayda.
In Marib and Al-Bayda, the coalition said it killed more than 140 militia members and destroyed 18 vehicles. It also announced the launch of 11 militia targeted operations to assist Sahelian forces and safeguard people.
