Spokesman: Houthis refuse to hand over Hodeida to 2014-regisrted forces

Alsahwa Net-The Houthis rebels have refused a proposal to hand over Hodeida city and ports to the 2014-registered forces that used to manage Hodeida prior the coming of the Houthis in late 2014, Wadah Al-Dabaish, military spokesman of the Joint Forces in Hodeida was quoted on Tuesday by the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat Daily Newspaper.

The Houthis’ refusal came during a meeting on board of a UN vessel, 30 Km off Hodeida city with the Redeployment Coordination Committee (RCC) that was attended also by the government’s representative.

The meeting which concluded on Monday 15 July 2019 did not achieve anything significance towards the Stockholm agreement implementation that requires both warring parties to withdraw from Hodeida city and ports and hand over the governorate of Hodeida to the previous administration that used to rule Hodeida before the Houthis’ coup in September 2014.

Al-Dabaish explained that representatives of the government and the Houthis transferred issues of ports security and revenues collection to the political leadership of the two parties to resolve them with the UN Envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths.

“The Houthis totally object the return of the 2014-registreed security personnel to Hodeida who used to run Hodeida before the Houthis’ coup,” said Al-Dabaish.

General, Michael Lollesgaard, chief of the RCC will brief the UN Security Council during a special meeting on Yemen next Thursday, said Al-Dabaish.
