Two towns in Yemen were taken by the Sunni coalition troops from the Houthis in 17-18 December 2015. In both cases troops crossed the Yemeni border directly from Saudi Arabia.
On 17 December Sunni coalition troops took Harad in the north-west of Yemen, 30 kilometers from the sea coast. On 18 December they took Al Hazm in the north-east of the Houthi-controlled territory.
