Coalition: Houthis violated Hodeidah ceasefire 14 times in past 24 hrs

The Arab Coalition said on Friday that Houthi militias violated the Hodeidah ceasefire 14 times in the past 24 hours.

The Coalition had announced on Thursday that Houthis violated the ceasefire 20 times that day.

Sources in Hodeidah said that the Houthi militias are persistent in maintaining their presence in Hodeidah and managing the port, as per their agenda.

The sources added that Houthis continue to reject opening secure humanitarian passages, not considering the matter a priority.

The legitimate Yemeni governments delegation left the city of Hodeidah without achieving anything in the second round of talks, according to the source.

The UN head of truce monitoring committee, retired Dutch General Patrick Cammaert, has concluded the second round of talks in Yemen, which was marked by persistent refusal of the Houthi militias to abide by Sweden agreement and the handing over of Hodeidah ports and withdrawal from the city.

This come after the Yemeni legitimate government, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates sent a letter to the UN Security Council accusing the Houthi militias of failing to abide by the ceasefire agreement in Hodeidah, which is witnessing continuous violations.
