BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 P.M.) – Saudi-backed Yemeni forces reportedly claimed to have expelled Houthis from the Duraihemi district, south of the port city of Hodaidah on Sunday, following battles with Houthi fighters.

Footage show fighters of the Saudi-backed ‘Yemeni National Army’ on board trucks, headed from Saudi-led coalition camps to the frontlines and soldiers firing ammo towards Houthi targets.

“We have cleared the rural areas, we have claimed ammunition that belonged to the Houthis, and, God willing, we are moving forward. We are ready in every way,” one Saudi-backed coalition government fighter said.

The port of Hodeidah is Yemen’s main point of entry for food aid.

With 8.4 million Yemeni people forced to the brink of starvation according to UN figures, the country has been plunged into a severe humanitarian crisis amid its ongoing conflict.

“With 8.4 million Yemeni people forced to the brink of starvation according to UN figures, the country has been plunged into a severe humanitarian crisis amid its ongoing conflict.” => And it won’t get better until Houthis stop confiscating humanitarian help in order to either use it for their fighters or sell it to their public. Now read this : “Ministry of Health in Sana’a: Dozens of dead and wounded, mostly children and women, bombed by the Saudi alliance on Durahmi south of Hodeidah” – AlMayadeenLive (Beirut) => Don’t you feel you’ve already red it from the White Helmets, FSA,… Read more »
