DUBAI: Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi praised the Arab coalition’s constant support for the legitimacy in Yemen and for the Yemeni people, Saudi state-news agency SPA reported.
He also commended the coalition’s successes in fighting off the Iran-backed Houthi militia.

This came during phone conversations with the Commander of the First Commander of the axis of Bab Al-Mandab, Brig. Gen. Abdul Ghani Subaihi, and Commander of the Third Brigade, Brig. Gen. Mahmoud Ahmed Sawli.

The president was briefed on the field progress made by the Yemeni army in the battles in the provinces of Taiz and Hodeidah.
President Hadi called on his people to unite and stand by the army and the popular resistance and support them by all means to continue their military operations aimed at liberating Yemen from the Houthis.

The Yemeni president stressed the need to continue advancing until the liberation of Taiz province is complete and security and stability is restored.
