Yemen

Forces loyal to the internationally recognized President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi announced this morning that they had broken the siege of the mountain city of Taiz; various medical sources estimate over 100 fatalities in the fighting of the last 24 hours. Locally, Taiz is a strategic city straddling communications routes between the interior of the country and the capital at Sana'a, and the major port city of Aden.

 

Iranian-backed Shiite Houthi forces backed by troops loyal to Ali Abdullah Saleh, Yemen's influential former president and General People's Congress party head, swept into the city on 22 March, 2015. Major combat operations commenced on 15 April, 2015, and a seesaw battle developed, that continues at this writing.

Government forces claim that they have opened a corridor to the southwestern portion of the city, but that continued house-to-house fighting is ongoing, as they plan to advance into the southeastern quarter, next.
