Senior political sources in Sanaa said the Houthis agreed to withdraw from Hodeidah in exchange of a number of conditions they proposed to Martin Griffiths, the United Nations special envoy to Yemen, who is currently visiting Sanaa.

These conditions include having the UN manage and run the Hodeidah Port, not intercept goods destined to their areas, obligate the legitimate government to pay employees’ wages in areas they control, halt the war, not targeting the new areas they control, obligate the Arab coalition to halt its strikes and begin peace negotiations along with setting enough guarantees to not violate the ceasefire.

The sources added that the Houthis also demanded not targeting their commanders by strikes or any other attacks and called on the UN to condemn the murder of Salah al-Sammad, the president of the so-called political council.

According to the sources, these conditions were laid out by the Houthis in response to the demands conveyed to them by Griffiths and which include withdrawing from Hodeidah to being negotiations and cease fire.
