An IED has exploded and the joint forces' engineering teams have defused two more IEDs over the past two days on major roads in Yemen’s western coastal governorates.
A source in the joint forces told Almasdar Online that an explosive device planted by the Houthis damaged a public transport vehicle on a dirt road linking Tahita and Al-Khokha in southern Hodeida governorate. The vehicle was damaged but the blast did not claim any casualties.
On Wednesday evening, the engineering teams of the joint forces defused an explosive device planted by the Houthis on the road linking Al-Khokha and Hees, also in southern Hodeidah governorate.
On Tuesday, military police on patrol defused a roadside IED on the road linking Al-Mikha and the interim capital Aden, between the Al-Jadid and Al-Kadah districts south of al-Mekha district, west of Taiz.
