New field gains made by the forces of the Southern Giants Brigades, at the expense of the Houthi militia, the Iranian arm in Yemen, on the Bayhan front in Shabwa governorate in the south of the country.

 Today, the Giants forces tightened control over the strategic Al-Naqoub area, which includes an important crossroads linking the Shabwa governorate to the adjacent Marib governorate, after the fiercest battles with the Houthi militia, in which the latter incurred heavy losses.

The giants also took control of the Al-Hami Junction, Jabal Subai'an, and the village of Hajira during a striking attack launched against the Houthi militia, which ended with the expulsion of the latter from the last areas of the Usaylan district, and the battles moved to the upper Baihan district.

Controlling Al-Naqoub would enable the Giants' forces to cut a major supply line to the militias in many mountainous areas, including al-Salim and al-Safra.

The strategic importance of the Al-Hamma Junction and the city of Al-Naqoub lies in being the centers of linkage, control and control of a number of roads and corridors that were used by the Houthi militias as supply and reinforcement arteries, according to the same source.

After the Giants Brigades succeeded in regaining the strategic Negev and the Nuwaidiya area, and controlling the heights of "Haid bin Saban" on the outskirts of the Bayhan District to the northwestern side of Shabwa Governorate, the confrontations moved to the (Upper) Bayhan District.

The new advance of the giants comes in the wake of the liberation of the areas of Hajar Kahlan and Tawal Al-Sadah, west of Shabwa.

For the fourth day, the Giants Brigades continue to advance in the field in the three districts of Baihan (Ain, Usaylan, and Bayhan) as part of the Operation Cyclone South, which it launched to expel the Houthi militia from the areas handed over by the Brotherhood without a fight last September.
