Yemeni government forces took 52 Houthi militias as hostages and controls several areas in northern Jawf province Sunday, according to the Yemeni army website 26sepnews.net.
The website also said that the army seized heavy weapons and military vehicles.
Yemeni army's 4th Military Area Spokesman Mohamed an-Nakib, said in a written statement that the government forces have taken back al-Karan mountain from the Houthi groups in as-Sabihah region of southern Lahij province.
Nakib said in the operations at least seven Houthi group were killed, however, he did not give any information about losses of government forces.
Yemen has remained dogged by violence since 2014, when the Houthi group overran much of the country, including the capital Sanaa.
In 2015, Saudi Arabia and its allies launched a massive military campaign aimed at reversing Houthi gains and shoring up Yemen's pro-Saudi government.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said earlier that nearly 40 foreign fighters allied to Syria's regime were killed in the raid in eastern Syria.
