Residents of Hodeidah called on UN Special Envoy for Yemen Martin Griffiths, who is currently visiting Sanaa, to visit Hodeidah and see first-hand the violations committed by the Houthi militia in the strategic port city.
They also called on the UN and Griffiths to intervene to end their suffering and accused the UN of ignoring what people in Hodeidah are going through as they’re being killed, detained and forcibly disappeared at the hands of the Houthis.
Meanwhile the International Committee of the Red Cross said it resumed its work in Yemen and resumed providing humanitarian aid in the fields of healthcare and surgery, adding that its teams provided relief and shelter to more than 7,000 people who fled Hodeidah and Al-Houk and Al Marawi'ah districts in the past two weeks.
The ICRC said in the beginning of June that it pulled 71 of its staff from Yemen amid rising security threats.
As for developments on the ground, the legitimate forces resumed on Monday their operations on the west coast fronts against the Houthis.
According to sources, the army thwarted a Houthis’ infiltration attempt south of Hodeidah. Houthi commanders Ahmad Yahya Ahmad al-Dai’, aka Abu Khaled, and Hamoud Ahmad Abu Halfa, aka Abu Nasr, were killed in the clashes.
