November 19, 2018

The national army of Yemen said that their force has recaptured the Ahem Triangle in Hajjah Governorate in north-west side of Yemen and they have secured the place too. They have also completed the control of the remaining villages that are adjacent to the triangle which was followed by a military operation by the army. They were also backed by the Arab coalition that supported the legitimacy in Yemen against the pro-Iranian Houthi militias.

The army forces also took the control of many of the villages on the eastern and northern side of the Ahem Triangle. According to some of the sources, the fight was continued for capturing the remaining villages of those areas for the second time. Several air raids were launched by coalition fighter jets on Houthi reinforcements and gatherings that resulted in the destruction of a military vehicle that carried quite a number of elements of the militias.

One of the important things to know about the Ahem Triangle is that it has a connection with the districts of Medi and Harad in the north, directorates of Hajour, Bakil al-Meer, and MestABa in the east, Hiran in the south. It is also a vital artery that connects to the governorates of Amran and Saada with Medi, Hodeidah, and Harad.

It is considered that the control of this Ahem triangle, a strategic one, by the Yemeni national army as a major military blow to the Houthis in Hodeidah. This is because it is as important as the cutting of the road in between Hodeidah and Saada.
