Houthi rebel fighters said they had repelled another assault by the UAE-backed forces on Al Hudaydah airport as battles for the strategic port city intensify.
The group’s media wing supported their claim with a video showing a convoy for the Gulf-backed troops under attack while trying to advance at the southern perimeter of the Hodeideh Airport.
At least 5 armored vehicles were completely destroyed by ATGMs. Scores of the UAE-backed forces have been also confirmed dead.
Despite the non-stop firefight and strikes, the port kept operating. Dock workers hastily unloaded three ships sent by the United Nations World Food Program that contained enough food for six million people for one month.
