Abdulraqeeb Fatah, Yemen's Minister of Local Administration and Chairman of the Higher Commission for Relief, condemned the Houthis for preventing relief organizations from delivering aid and distributing it in Ad Durayhimi and At Tuinternationalhayat Districts in Hodeidah.

Fatah told the Yemeni News Agency (SABA) that these measures are terrorist and violate international and humanitarian law.

Meanwhile, the Yemeni army forces, aided by the popular resistance, attacked Houthi posts in Al-Sharyga in north Lahij and in Ar Rahidah, southwest of Taiz.

A military source told the armed forces’ media center that the national armed forces liberated some areas and plateaus that overlook Al-Sharyga- Ar Rahidah path amid collapses in the Houthis’ ranks.
