The Arab Coalition said on Thursday that 24 permits were issued for ships heading towards Yemeni ports carrying food and oil aid.

The Coalition added that five ships have been waiting for the past 27 days to enter Hodeidah’s port, due to Houthi disruption.

Thirty-four air permits, three land permits, and 145 convoy-protection permits have been issued, according to the Coalition, making the number of permits issued reach 206 in the past four days.

Earlier the same day, Houthi militias fired at the convoy of Patrick Cammaert, the UN’s head of ceasefire monitor group in Hodeidah, while he was on his way back to Hodeidah’s downtown following a meeting with the legitimate government’s delegation.
