Scores of Houthi militias were killed and wounded in Taiz amid violent confrontations with the Yemeni army.
A soldier of the army was killed and five others were wounded in the battle in which the Saudi-led Arab Coalition involved.
The Yemeni army captured al-Amari camp and other strategic positions close to al-Makha port in Taiz governorate.
The Yemeni army backed by the Arab coalition launched on Saturday a military campaign aiming to liberate the eastern coasts of Yemen. This campaign was called "the gold spear".
Local sources told Alsahwah Net that the army took over a camp and other strategic positions, affirming that forces of the Houthis retreated in different coastal positions.
The sources affirmed that huge military reinforcements were brought to Bab Elmandab from the southern port city of Aden, citing that they included tanks, artilleries, gun machines and armored personnel carriers.
This military campaign aims to secure the coastal line from al-Makha to Bab Elmandab and cut the military supplies provided to the Houthis through these coasts. It also aims to secure the international navigation line.
