Saudi-backed coalition forces and Houthi armed groups have been engaged in fierce fighting close to Hodeidah University on Sunday.

Footage shows Saudi-led coalition troops firing weapons and mortars allegedly targeted at Houthis forces in densely-populated areas.

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.
