KUWAIT CITY, April 2. /TASS/. Shiite rebels have retreated from several areas of Aden in the south of Yemen, Sky News Arabia said on Thursday.
Supporters of the Ansar Allah movement, also called the Houthis, left the central part of the city after the coalition led by Saudi Arabia delivered airstrikes at rebel positions overnight. However, rebels maintain control over Khormaksar, which connects the island part of the city with the main part.
Al Arabiya reported earlier that Houthi fighters left their positions on the outskirts of Aden.
On Wednesday, the media reported continuing clashes in the second-largest Yemeni city.
Since August 2014, Yemen has been hit by a severe political and security crisis. In late January, the armed groups of Ansar Allah (Houthi rebels) forced the president and the government to announce resignation.
The rebels later took control of the country’s capital and several northern provinces. They also announced the adoption of the so-called constitutional declaration.
Overnight to March 26, Saudi Arabia launched a military operation in the neighboring country and delivered air strikes at several Houthi positions.
Pro-government forces regained control of the Aden airport, while Yemeni President Abd Rabbah Mansur Hadi fled the country to Saudi Arabia.
The coalition is currently considering launching a ground operation in Yemen to oust Houthis.
