On Monday, Popular Resistance Forces carried out an operation against Houthi militants in al Jahmaliyya area of Taiz.
Yemen plunged into political chaos after the Iranian backed Houthi militants seized the country's capital Sanaa in September 2014.
Following further Houthi assaults President Abd Rabuh Mansour Hadi fled the country in March 2015 and called on Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations to help save Yemen.
In March 2015 a Saudi-led coalition consisting of 12 countries - mostly from the Arab region - began operations in Yemen.
According to the United Nations figures, around 6,000 people, half of which are civilians, died in Yemen since the war began.
The chaos has allowed a powerful local Al Qaeda affiliate and a more recently formed branch of the DAESH terrorist group to expand their reach, including in Aden, Yemen's commercial hub.
