Senior members of Yemen's exiled administration flew into Aden Thursday to prepare for the government's return, an official said, as Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters drove Houthis out of two major neighborhoods in the city, prompting street celebrations by residents after weeks of fierce fighting.The visit by ministers and intelligence officials follows military setbacks for the Houthis at the hands of Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters which may mark a turning point in the conflict that has killed more than 3,000 people. Local fighters have wrested Yemen's airport and main seaport from the militia group in the past two days, in fighting that killed dozens of people, according to medics.Arab coalition ships and warplanes bombed trucks carrying Houthi reinforcements toward the city, local fighters said.Arab countries, particularly the United Arab Emirates, have shipped around 100 armored vehicles to the war effort, they said.Backed by Saudi-led airstrikes, militia officials said they were also advancing toward one of Yemen's most important air bases about 50 km north of Aden.
