Arab Coalition to open humanitarian corridors for civilians in Yemen’s Hodeidah
The Arab Coalition announced on Saturday that it would soon open safe corridors for Yemeni civilians and relief and humanitarian convoys in the province of Hodeidah.
The coalition, which is fighting against Yemen’s Houthi militia, confirmed that the opening of the corridors comes in agreement with the United Nations following intensive meetings focusing on the humanitarian situation.
Hodeidah has recently witnessed a massive exodus of Houthi militias following Arab Coalition and Yemeni government attacks.
The militia had been shelling of homes in several areas including Durahemi, al-Tahta, Hays, Taif, al-Manar and Zubaid.
They also planted mines and explosive devices on farms and roads amid daily shelling using mortars and Katyusha rockets.
Since the militia took over Hodeidah, the militias have displaced thousands of residents.
The Yemeni army announced on Friday it had regained control of an air defense camp in eastern Hodeidah.
