The Yemeni army and Popular Committees, backed by fighters from Ma’rib province, have fully liberated al-Jubah district, south of the province.
The sources affirmed that the control of the district came after clashes with the Saudi-led coalition militants for more than a month.
Deputy Foreign Minister in the National Salvation Government in Sana’a, Hussein al-Ezzi, said on Tuesday afternoon that “al-Jubah is the last district of Ma’rib to embrace Sana’a after a long absence.”
الجوبة تعانق صنعاء بعد طول غياب
(بالأشواق والحنين يلتقي العاشقون ولا شيءيكسر إرادةالحب في أي مكان وفي أي ظرف كان فوق الماء وتحت الماء فوق النار وتحت الناروقلنا يانار كوني بردا وسلاما وقلنا ياأرض ابلعي ماءك وياسماءأقلعي وغيض الماء واستوت ع الجودي وقيل بعدا للقوم الظالمين)
