The Yemeni legitimate government, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have sent a letter to the UN Security Council accusing the Houthi militias of failing to abide by the ceasefire agreement in Hodeidah, which is witnessing continuous violations.

The letter accused the Houthi militias of failing to comply with the UN brokered ceasefire agreement reached in Sweden last month.

The letter - which was written on December 31 - was sent to outgoing UN Security Council head Kacou Houajda Leon Adom - accused the pro-Iranian Houthi militias of violating the ceasefire in Hodeidah port city, where they erected barricades and dug trenches.

The letter also accused the Houthis of launching attacks including sniper fire and medium-range ballistic missiles in Hodeida.

This comes even as the UN team oversees the implementation of the truce, led by retired Dutch General Patrick Cammaert continues meeting with all concerned sides.

At its meeting on Wednesday, and for the second consecutive day, the team discussed a ceasefire monitoring mechanism, which has been subjected to daily violations by militias.
