Yemen’s Ansarullah fighters have secured a key central province in their ongoing operations against the al-Qaeda terrorists.
Military officials said the fighters also known as Houthis took full control of Bayda province. Bayda is the gateway to the country’s south, which remains in the hands of the secessionists. It is also overlooking the strategic oil-rich Ma’arib province to the east. The Shia movement started its operations against militant groups in September. It managed to restore security to the capital first.
