Yemeni government forces enter Hodeida airport, UAE says
23 June, 2018, 13:23
"We are now destroying Houthi fortifications near the airport", spokesman Turki al-Malki said in an interview with Al Arabiya television from Brussels, accusing the Houthis of placing tanks inside residential areas.
"We've done some initiatives.to educate people about safe water use as temperatures are rising", he told Reuters.
He said these operations contributed to the imposition of control on these fronts, referring to the heavy losses suffered by the Iran-backed Houthi terrorist coup militia, which made them unable to withstand, or deal with this very critical situation.
Capturing Hodeidah would give the coalition of mostly Gulf states a victory in the battle for the city. "Too many states are acting like there's nothing they can do".
The U.N. World Food Programme said on Tuesday it was hastening to unload three ships at the port that contain enough food for six million people for one month. The U.A.E. says the operation aims to force the Iranian-aligned Houthis into talks, but the United Nations has warned two-thirds of the population could die if Hodeidah is besieged, and is pushing for a political resolution to spare the city. Hodeida is the main entry point for food to Yemen, already on the brink of starvation. "We have humanitarian and development plans for when we liberate the city".
Houthi spokesmen, for their part, have yet to comment on the army's claims.
Houthi authorities set up loudspeakers on Hodeidah's main streets playing martial chants and excerpts of al-Houthi's speeches, another resident said.
The United Arab Emirates is a country better known for oil riches and skyscraper skylines, but right now it is prosecuting what could be a crucial offensive in the 3-year-old conflict in Yemen.
Hodeidah handled 70 percent of the nation's food imports before the war, and periodic Saudi blockades of the port since 2015 have heightened fears of starvation in a country where some 22 million people are in need of humanitarian aid. They say they came to power in a popular revolt against corruption and are protecting the country from foreign invasion.
After almost a month of sporadic clashes between Houthi forces and the coalition, coupled with Hadi's militia, in the volatile province of Hudaydah, the latter two launched a major offensive on June 13 to take the Houthi-held Hudaydah, a densely-populated city and the war-torn country's most vital port, which is the entry point for 70 percent of the impoverished country's imports. The war has killed more than 10,000 people in all. Iran has been accused by the USA and the United Nations of supplying ballistic missile technology to the Houthis, something Tehran denies.
