ADEN: The UAE Armed Forces and the legitimate Yemeni army continue to tighten control on the Khalid ibn Al Waleed camp in Yemen, one of the most important camps and among the strongest fortifications liberated by the Arab coalition forces led by Saudi Arabia from the Iranian-backed Houthi militias.

The camp is the first line of defence and the main strategic link between the provinces of Taiz and Hodeidah.

The fall of the Khalid camp is of strategic and tactical importance and represents an important starting point for the launch of other operations.

The 12-square kilometre camp is located in the Al Mukha junction, west of Taiz and at a crossroad between the provinces of Taiz and Hodeidah in western Yemen.

The capture of the camp will facilitate the lifting of the siege on the Taiz province. The camp is 60 km from Taiz and 40 km from the city of Al Mukha. It is considered the second line of defence from the Mocha coast and other vital targets in the city.
