For the first time in 60 years, the strategic region of al-Yatamah returns to the Yemenis. A military operation carried out by the Yemeni Army and the Popular Committees led to the regaining of more than 1,200 kilometers from the said area.
It is true that al-Yatamah lies within Yemeni territory, however, beginning several decades Saudi (Arabia) transformed this region and its surrounding areas into (defacto Saudi territory) such that successive Yemeni governments had no real authority over this area.
During this period, Saudi Arabia had forbidden oil exploration work (in al-Yatamah), an area rich with oil and liquified gas. (Riyadh) also imposed the use of the Saudi currency instead of the Yemeni currency for trade in this region, and (the Saudis) turned the (Yemeni) al-Jawf (Governorate) into a joint market with the (Saudi) Najran region.
Following the taking of control of al-Yatamah – which lies in the al-Jawf region – by the (Yemeni) Army and the Popular Committees, military sources confirm that this area enjoys great strategic importance, due to its various hilltops which provide (those who control them) firepower superiority over vast areas.
Furthermore, (Al-Yatamah is a great strategic region due) to its nearness to the AlBuqa area which lies between al-Jawf and Sa’dah, and is also close to Manfadh al-Khadrah which connects Yemen to Saudi Arabia. This means that the (Yemeni) Army and the Popular Committees are now positioned directly opposite each other (in this region).
According to these same (military) sources, the fall of al-Yatamah secures the entire north of the Ma’rib Governorate, and consequently opens the way for (Sana’a-led forces) to march on to Manfadh al-Wadee’ah, and to cut the international road that links Ma’rib to Hadramot.

Great news! If Saudi Arabia (a registered AZC oil company) no longer controls this oil rich region of Yemen, who now will help the Yemeni to develope the oil and gas fields? And who will now support Yemen against a counter strike from NATZO?
Good news is in short measure for those of us who have a conscience.
I’m currently raising a toast to the brave freedom fighters of Yemen and their allies. God speed the rehabilitation of Yemen under its rightful leadership.
Still, the Wahhabis will fight to the last Sudanese brainwashed desperate patsy.
This seems like a pretty good map:
It seems the area is more or less adjacent to the 3 provinces, Jizan, Najran, and Asir, taken from Yemen in 1934. The governance of these areas is still in dispute; maybe the Houthis are aiming to restore these. Good for them!
Great news. Hopefully the Yemenis will liberate every inch of their territory stolen by the zionist Saudie.
The axis of resistance is victorious. That will cost the USA, UK and France most of their influence in West-Asia.
The great fact of truth that history has written in the events of the time in the world is: Evil must be defeated, in order for good to survive, until the lie completely wins, the truth is alive. This is known to Shiites who do not fight, but fight, Ansarullah is that fact of truth and Hezbollah is that fact of truth, and as time passes they are stronger and more determined to defeat evil, because there is no other option nor does it exist when it comes to evil .
Finally they got kicked theirs a..s out from place were they don’t belong. Good job 👏
