The Yemeni forces backed by popular resistance and the Saudi-led coalition retook the Midi port in the province of Hajjah after days of fierce battles with the Houthi militants, military sources said on Wednesday.
In the southern front, they drove the Houthi militants out of positions seized lately in the province of Lahj.
Battles between the forces and the Houthis continued in the provinces of Taiz, Jawf, Marib and Ibb as well coinciding with escalating airstrikes by the coalition in these provinces and the capital Sanaa.
The coalition, bombing Yemen since March, also carried out raids in the province of Hodeida with some hitting private business including the soft drinks factory of Dico.
Last night, the United Nations Security Council urged the parties to the conflict in Yemen to resume a ceasefire which ended this week.
Moreover, the council called on the Yemeni factions to participate in a new round of peace talks in order to end the months-long conflict and address the catastrophic humanitarian situation.
The government, the Houthi group and other factions agreed to hold a new round of talks in mid-January after they failed to reach a deal at UN-backed talks held in Switzerland.
Around 82% of Yemen's population, 21 million, need basic humanitarian aid due to the ten-months conflict part of which a coalition-imposed blockage on all sea, land and air routes.
The blockade has deepened the humanitarian suffering as it affected all exports and imports leaving the country to face acute shortages of supplies.
