BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – A series of fierce clashes broke out inside the strategic port-city of Hodeidah on Saturday after the pro-government troops heavily shelled the Houthi positions in the provincial capital.

According to a local source, the UAE-backed Southern Resistance troops fired several shells towards the Houthi defenses, prompting the latter to open fire on the former’s forces at the southern part of the city.

The clashes eventually subsided between the warring parties after more than two hours of intense firefights in the southern districts of Hodeidah.

Since the start of the U.N.-sponsored ceasefire, both the Houthi forces and the pro-government troops have traded daily hostilities inside the provincial capital.

While the U.N. maintains control over the port, the situation around the city is still very tense, with reports of pro-government troops sending reinforcements to the front-lines.
