The Arab Coalition in Yemen said on Thursday that Houthis have been blocking the passage of four aid ships since 34 days.

The ships heading towards the Hodeidah port carry oil and food aid, said the Coalition, stressing on the fact that preventing the ships from unloading will affect the lives of the Yemeni people.

Al-Salif port has been clear of ships for the past 12 days, and Houthi militias are blocking the entrance of all ships, according to the Coalition.

The Coalition also announced issuing 12 permits for ships heading towards Yemeni ports, in addition to 34 aerial permits and 120 permits for convoy protection.

In the past three days, the total number of permits issued has reached 166, said the Coalition.
