According to the media, the STC said that the aim of the military operation is to “liberate Shuqrah and Qarn al-Kalasi areas from the terror militia,” which referred to Hadi’s forces and Islah militants.
The media explained that the operation involves a number of axes, and extends from the Sala Valley to the coastal right-hand side.
The UAE-backed militias have pushed armoured units to the forefront of the operation, in coordination with various forces.
