MARIB, Oct. 08 (YPA) – The Salvation Government forces have continued to advance towards Marib city from the northern side and reached the main entrance to the city, local sources reported on Thursday.

The sources pointed out that the Sanaa forces launched a large-scale military attack towards the positions of the Saudi-led coalition forces in “Wadi Nakhla” area and at the bottom of “Dash Al-Khashab” Mount.

Fierce battles took place, in which dozens of people were killed and wounded on both sides, during which Sanaa forces were able to impose their control over “Al-Taba Al-Hamraa” sites near “Al-White” and “Sulfur Well” sites in Wadi Nakhla, according to the sources.

Sana’a forces were also able to clear what was left of “Dash al-Khashab” mountain near the coalition forces camp in “Sahn Al-Jin” area, north of the city of Marib.

This comes after the great progress made by the Sanaa forces in the battles of Al-Jouba, the southern entrance to the city of Marib.
