The UN is extremely concerned about the situation around the Port of Hodeida in western Yemen, the press secretary of the UN Secretary-General Stefan Dujarrik stated during a regular briefing for journalists.

According to the supporters of the Yemeni regime and the Arab coalition, Hodeidah is the main source of arms supplies to the Houthi forces.

The Bab-el-Mandeb Strait is also close to the world’s most important shipping area.

In recent days, the situation around the port has become tense.

“We are extremely concerned about the situation around Hodeida. Our colleagues in this area have already begun to take precautionary measures in terms of curtailing aid and reviewing the contingency plan in case of further escalation of the situation,” Dujarrik said.
