The Arab Coalition supporting legitimacy in Yemen stated that the Houthis prevented five ships from entering the Hodeidah Port and unloading their cargo, as well as another ship from entering the Salif Port. They warned that the militias’ behavior will impact the Yemeni people’s livelihood and health.
The Coalition added that it had issued six permits for the ships to head towards Yemeni ports, adding that they carry essential materials, food products, medical aid and oil derivatives.
They stated that five ships are currently present in the Hodeidah Port and five others have been waiting to enter the port for more than a month.
Meanwhile, the Coalition’s air defense system detected a ballistic missile falling in the sea, which the militias had fired towards the Hodeidah Port on Wednesday.
The Houthis fired the missile from the Salif District and targeted the Hodeidah Port following their consecutive defeats in the city.
