The Yemeni national army seized control of the area of Gharafi around Khaled bin al-Walid camp in Taez on Monday evening following violent clashes with Houthi militias and forces loyal to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

A source said Yemeni forces also seized control of al-Thubani in Mocha and liberated vast areas in the surroundings of Dar ibn Alwan in Mawza in west Taez.

The command of the Taez axis said clashes in the hills of al-Douwayha extended to Jabal Aqqar in Mawza, adding that 12 rebels were killed and that the rebels’ morale has collapsed.

Earlier on Monday, legitimate forces in Yemen, aided by Arab coalition forces, seized the special telecommunication towers in the Khaled bin al-Walid camp while an army battalion worked with Al-Waziiyah residents to clean the camp of landmines.
