Forces loyal to the Saudi-backed Yemeni president stand on the back an armed vehicle on a road leading to the entrance of Abyan province as they take part in an operation to drive Al-Qaeda fighters out of the southern provincial capital, on April 23, 2016. Yemeni forces backed by air power from the Saudi-led Arab coalition launched an operation in Abyan province as they advanced towards Zinjibar and the neighbouring town of Jaar, military sources said. Soldiers reached Al-Kud, five kilometres (three miles) south of Zinjibar where they clashed with Qaeda militants, while coalition Apache helicopters targeted extremist positions in the vicinity, according to the officials. Twelve Al-Qaeda militants and three soldiers died in the fighting, a military official said. Government forces last week expelled militants of the jihadist network's local branch -- Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula -- from Huta, the provincial capital of Lahj, as part of a widespread operation to secure southern provinces. Coalition-backed forces have driven militants out of Aden, the southern city declared by Hadi as temporary capital after Shiite Huthi rebels stormed Sanaa in September 2014. The Arab coalition launched a military operation in support of Hadi in March last year after rebels advanced on his refuge in Aden and forced him to flee to Riyadh.
 

Les hostilités seront suspendues pendant trois jours à compter de demain entre les rebelles Houthis et la coalition arabe au Yémen.
