Map: The Military Situation in Yemen | August 21, 2015
Since the major advances in late July and early August that ended up by taking five provinces (Abyan, Aden, Dale’, Lahj and Shabwah) by the government forces and the popular resistance committees, no rapid changes in the situation of Yemen in the recent days.
Government forces and the popular resistance committees advanced inside Taiz city and its outskirts, as well in the countryside of Ibb province. Houthis and pro-Saleh forces (former Regime) were able to retake repel the government forces advancements toward Dhumar province and to retake some areas in al-Baydaa province.
Some activists in Aden (close to the Southern Movement) said that new offensive (supported by the Arab coalition) is expected to be launched in the western coast of Yemen, aiming to take the strategic port of Hudaydah.
