Ansarallah spokesman reveals the new step by the coalition on Hodeidah
Head of the national negotiating delegation and Spokesman of Ansaruallah, Mohammed Abdulsalam, on Thursday said Saudi-led coalition is preparing for a new escalation round in Hodeidah city.
Abdulsalam considered that the coalition’s declaration of halting military operations is only for misleading to gain further time to prepare for new attacks on the city.
“In each round of the aggression rounds on Yemen, the escalation usually begins and decreases or fades without a declaration of truce,” he added.
Hodeidah is a strategic port city which should be supporting more than 20 million Yemenis. It should be the source of at least 70 percent of all imports to Yemen,” Suze van Meegen, a protection and advocacy adviser with the Norwegian Refugee Council, told AFP. The US-Saudi-led coalition has been eager to retake from Yemeni joint forces control, according to Yemeni officials.. But the former UN special envoy to Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheik, warned against attacking the port city over potential catastrophic consequences to Yemen last year. Martin Griffiths, the new special envoy to Yemen, echoed the same concern over attacking Hudaydah at the UN Security Council .
The United Arab of Emirates bought weapons from Israel to kill the Yemeni people, an Israeli Journalist and academic researcher at Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies said.
“The United Arab Emirates has purchased arms from the Zionist entity to kill Muslims,” Edy Cohen said on his Twitter Account on Saturday, adding that Palestine does not manufacture weapons”.
