Military officials states that at least 28 Houthi insurgents and 12 Yemeni soldiers were killed on Tuesday in the southern province of Shabwa as government forces pushed to capture a rebel enclave.

The fighting flared when forces loyal to President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi attacked rebels in Bayhan district, which is still controlled by the Iran-backed rebels after government forces supported by the Saudi-led Arab coalition last year expelled them from five southern provinces, on the border between Shabwa and Marib provinces.

“The death toll of the Houthis has reached 28 while 12 soldiers of the legitimate forces were killed,” a military official said.

Military officials said that government forces backed by coalition warplanes drove the rebels out of several positions in the area, adding that 14 insurgents were also captured.
