Brig. Asiri pointed out that a small group belonging to the Houthi militia tried yesterday to access inside districts of Aden for carrying out "hit and run operations" in order to achieve media goals for making confusion, but the popular committees acted on stopping them where the militia goal was to reach the presidential palace. "The People's Committees and the Yemeni loyal army responded to this operation with follow-up of the coalition forces," he confirmed.
Brig. Asiri indicated that the coalition forces provided at dawn today a logistical support to the People's Committees in Aden which are managed to change the situation on the ground and expel the Houthi militia elements from the presidential palace and the Houthi controlled-areas. "The militias are holed in Aden. We are dealing with them in order to isolate the city of Aden from any external support," Asiri added.
