Map: The Military Situation in Yemen | August 13, 2015
The situation in Yemen has been changing since months, as well after the intervention of the Arab Coalition (Gulf countries, Jordan, Morocco, Sudan and Egypt) in order to back the Yemeni government and the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC). The rapid changes in the military situation started after the Yemeni government decivise victory in Aden city in July 2015, and their rapid advances toward Lahj, Abyan, al-Dale’, Taiz, Ibb, Shabwah and Dhumar provinces.
Houthis and pro-Saleh forces (former Regime) are now trying to advance toward Lahj from Taiz, and to build a defense line for Sanaa in Dhumar province.
AQAP took the provincial capital of Hadramaut province (Mukalla city) in the past months and lost control of many areas in the countryside in several provinces, but their tribal allies (like Qaifa) still controlling some areas in al-Baydaa province near Radaa’.
