The Houthi militias prevented on Friday the Yemeni government’s delegation from leaving the port city of Hodeidah, after the conclusion of consultations with the United Nations team, tasked with monitoring the ceasefire between the Houthis and the legitimate government.
The consultations come in the context of the peace deal reached in Sweden between Yemen’s warring parties.
Al-Hadath news channel’s correspondent reported earlier on Friday, that an agreement was reached to open the eastern road (known as Kilo 16) which links Sanaa with the port city of Hodeidah and Taiz on Saturday.
But the legitimate government’s delegation, which was supposed to leave Hodeidah on Friday noon, was prevented by the Houthis from leaving and is still inside a hotel in the city.
