304 Violations of Cease-Fire in Hodeidah Over 48 Hours: Army Spokesman




The Saudi-led coalition and its militias have committed 308 violations of UN-brokered cease-fire in Hodeidah over the past 48 hours, Yemen’s army spokesman Yahya Sarie said in a statement on Wednesday.

“The violations included 144 artillery shells, 21 missiles and 91 shooting of various medium and light weapons that targeted houses and farms of the citizens in several districts and Hodeidah city,” Sarie said.

The spokesman confirmed that the army monitored 36 reinforcements operations and establishing new fortifications of the militias toward several areas in the province, while the Saudi-led coalition warplanes and reconnaissance aircraft continued to fly intermittently over the sky of Hodeidah city and a number of districts.

He added that the coalition warplanes waged 38 raids on separate districts of Yemen’s provinces.

The spokesman said the coalition’s ongoing violations would obligate Swede agreement, holding the coalition the full responsibility for an attempt to fail the cease-fire.

The Unjust siege, the continuous bombardment, the stifling crisis and all that caused by the war waged by Saudi-led coalition against Yemen in general and Hodeidah province in particular, have created a tragic environment for malnourished children, which has affected Yemeni children in the first place and the society as whole in all its categories.
