emen’s government will have control of 90 percent of the country after liberating the central governate of Al-Bayda from Iran-backed Houthi militants, according to the adviser to the supreme leader of the Yemeni armed forces, Saudi state-news channel Al-Ekhbariya reported.

During a meeting with top military commanders in Al-Bayda, Lt General Mohammad Ali Al-Maqdashi, said the liberation of the province would transfer the battle to the neighboring governorate of Dhamar.

He added that the push would contribute to freeing Taiz and Ibb provinces in the approach to the southern gate of the capital, Sanaa.
