The Yemeni government on Tuesday reiterated its accusations that the Houthis were using the Hudaydah port for military purposes and to threaten international navigation and target ships that pass in the Red Sea, adding that it’s thus a must to put the port under the management of international observers.
Yemeni Information Minister Muammar al-Eryani also renewed calls to the international community to conduct a neutral investigation into the fire which erupted in the World Food Program warehouses in the Hudaydah port on Saturday, adding it was “arson.”
“The incident confirms the need to put the port under the management of international observers as allowing the militias to continue to control the port means worsening the Yemeni people’s suffering,” he added.
The minister’s statement came few hours before the Arab coalition foiled an attack on a Saudi oil tanker in international waters, west of Hudaydah.
