The spokesperson of the Arab coalition forces, Col. Turki al-Maliki, said on Monday that the humanitarian support in Yemen will continue to reach everyone without distinction.

He pointed out that the coalition appealed to the political and social sides in Aden to exercise calm and cooperate with the government and focus on the fight against the militias.

Al-Maliki said during a conference in Riyadh that Al-Khadra port had been activated to provide aid to Yemen, and that maritime permits had been issued to secure aid supply through Hodeidah, noting that the coalition was cooperating with international organizations to deliver aid in Yemen.

A spokesman for the Arab coalition forces said that they brought back 27 children who were taken by force by the militias, pointing out that the coalition is also working to remove the mines planted by Iran and the Houthi militias.

Al-Maliki confirmed that the legitimate forces advanced in Al Baq’e and in the western part of Al-Bayda, adding that a booby-trapped boat was targeted while launching from the port of Hodeidah, which is still under the control of the coup forces.

The coalition seized as well weapons smuggled by the Houthi militias, including Sam rockets.

It also targeted members of the Houthi militia who tried to gain access across the border, as well as vehicles carrying weapons close to the Yemeni side of the Saudi border, he added.
