Tens of pro-government and Houthi fighters were killed and injured in raging battles in the provinces of Jawf, Marib and Taiz on Saturday.
Military sources said the government forces backed by the popular resistance and the Saudi-led coalition waged an offensive against the Houthi militants retaking positions and killing, injuring and arresting tens of them on the border between Marib and Jawf.
The government forces also battled the Houthis in other parts of Jawf as they are continuing to clean the province from the militants, the sources said.
In Taiz, the government forces with support from the popular resistance launched fierce battles against the Houthis at several fronts, local sources said.
They retook the Najd Kusaim in the district of Misrakh and forced the militants to retreat in the district of Al-Waziyah, they said, adding that the Arab coalition carried out fresh air raids in Taiz today.
Today, UN Resident Coordinator in Yemen Jamie McGoldrick urged all factions to work with the UN to facilitate aid delivery to the population of Taiz.
After a visit to the province which has been besieged by the Houthis for months, McGoldrick said he had got acquitted with the suffering of the people amid acute shortages of supplies and deteriorating services.
The UN has been calling for an end to the siege on Taiz for months while affirming that more than 300.000 have been facing harsh conditions.
Meanwhile, Houthi media said the Houthi forces resumed the battles against the pro-government forces on the border between Taiz and Lahj retaking positions they had lost months ago.
Moreover, news reports said battles between the Saudi-led forces and Houthi forces raged in the province of Hajjah on the border between the two countries.
The coalition intensified aid raids on Houthi targets in the province killing and injuring Houthis and civilians as well as destroying a lot of properties, according to reports.
The coalition launched the bombing campaign against Yemen in late March in order to restore the legitimacy of the government which was ousted by the Houthis in late 2014.
