Iran-allied Houthi militiamen pushed into the northeastern suburbs of the Yemeni port city of Aden Monday amid heavy clashes with loyalists of President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi, sources on both sides said.Artillery and rocket fire struck the area around the Alam roundabout near the city's airport, Hadi's fighters said, after the Houthis advanced along an Arabian Sea coast road. The Saudi-led Sunni Arab coalition has vowed to keep up the raids until the rebels abandon their insurrection against Hadi, who has fled to Riyadh.A Hadi aide confirmed the president had dismissed Ahmed Ali Saleh, who was appointed to the post after his father's overthrow but is believed to have remained in Yemen.The Houthis and allied renegade military units have overrun much of Yemen and prompted Hadi to flee what had been his last remaining refuge in the main southern city Aden. Erdogan said Monday that he still planned to visit Iran despite a war of words with Tehran.
