SAFER, Yemen - Gulf Arab coalition forces fighting Houthi militia in Yemen are advancing on the capital in a two-pronged offensive, generals told reporters on Monday at a desert oil compound they have turned into a military base.

Yemeni forces and their Arab allies are fighting to oust the Iranian-alled Houthis in a six-month war that has killed more than 4,500 people and brought the country to the brink of famine.

Speaking a day after Yemen's exiled government pulled out of UN-mediated talks, Yemeni General Abd-Rabbu Qassem al-Shaddadi said: "We hope people make a compromise before what's left of Yemen is destroyed."
