Aden: Pro-government fighters in south Yemen seized control Tuesday of Aden`s airport after fierce battles with Iran-backed rebel forces, military sources said.

Aided by warplanes from the Saudi-led coalition, fighters from the Popular Resistance also pushed back the Huthi rebels and their allies from areas within the war-torn port city, the sources said.
