Spokesman of Arab Coalition: Hudeidah Port must be liberated

Spokesman of the Arab Coalition Ahmed Asiri said that the rejection of the United Nations to supervise Hudeidah Port left no option but to liberate the port.

Asiri told media outlets on Friday that the Arab Coalition will carry out military operation to restore Hudeidah Port which is currently run by the Houthis.

Asiri said that the Arab Coalition is preparing Mocha Port to receive relief and humanitarian assistance and to be as an alternative of Hudeidah port.

Meanwhile, Yemen Ambassador to the United Nations Khalid al-Yamani has said that the UN rejection to send supervisors to Hudeidah Port is clear-cut disregard of the International law.

In remarks to al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper, Al-Yamani expressed sorrow as the United Nations has not shouldered its responsibility in Yemen.

He said that the Yemeni government provided evidences that humanitarian assistance brought to Hudeidah are exploited by militias of the Houthis and Saleh and are not given to Yemenis.

He spelt out that the militias use Hudeidah Port for their war operations and the smuggle of weapons.

Meanwhile, minister of the Public Administration has said that militias of the Houthis and Saleh use Hudeida port as a hub for smuggling weapons.

He said that the Arab Coalition called to the United Nations to supervise Hudeidah port because it takes care for humanitarian situation of Yemenis.

He called local and international organizations to oversee Hudeidah port, stressing that the government are more interested than any other one to tackle troubles of civilians in all Yemeni governorates.

The Arab coalition said in a statement on Sunday that it was not responsible for the attack on the refugee boat in the area of Hodeida and called for the port to be "placed immediately under United Nations supervision."

About 7.3 million people in Yemen are in dire need of food aid in the largest food insecurity emergency in the world, according to the United Nations.

The United Nations has rejected a call of the Saudi-led Arab Coalition to supervise the key port of Hudiedah.

UN spokesman Farhan Haq said the warring sides in Yemen have a responsibility to protect civilian infrastructure and civilians.

"These are not obligations they can shift to others," Haq said.

The Arab coalition said in a statement on Sunday that it was not responsible for the attack on the refugee boat in the area of Hodeida and called for the port to be "placed immediately under United Nations supervision."
