Fighting persisted in Yemen’s strategic port city of Hodeidah on Friday, as Saudi-led coalition forces continued their offensive to wrest control of the city from the Houthis.

Footage shows heavy smoke billowing over Hodeidah and armoured vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition firing their weapons as they push through the Houthi-controlled city.

According to the UN, thousands of people have been trapped in the city by the fighting and some 445,000 people from the Hodeidah Governorate have fled since the start of the large-scale operation in June.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres called the ongoing conflict in Yemen the “world’s worst humanitarian crisis,” since over 22 million people – nearly three-quarters of the population – require some form of humanitarian assistance.

The UN has also stated that over 13 million people in Yemen are at risk of dying from starvation in what could become the worst famine the world has witnessed in a century.

The Americans want the Saudis to attack Hodeida because they don’t want the Houthis choking off the Bab-el-Mandes strait in a direct conflict with Iran.

Gutierrez is a spineless, totally inept, wienie. He talks about the severe plight of the Yemenis but does nothing to make the Saudi led coalition to stop its ongoing carnage. A worthless piece of trash.
