Scores Killed in Heavy Fighting Around Yemen’s Hodeidah Port

Saudi-backed forces are reporting heavy fighting in and around the vital aid port of Hodeidah, in northwestern Yemen. Reports suggest that over 60 were killed in the course of the day’s clashes, with 54 of them Shi’ite Houthis.

Fighting initially focused on some of the rare farms around the province, and some military positions leading into the port city itself. The port is the source of food aid for about 70% of Yemen, and the lone port under the control of the Houthi movement.

Yemen imports the vast, vast majority of its food, so a protracted battle for the last Houthi port could cut off millions in Houthi territory from any food aid at all, leading to mass starvation. The Saudi-backed forces have promised to eventually open “humanitarian routes” out of the city.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Eventually" when it comes to the Saudi foreign policy, which is engineered to starve the Houthis into submission, as they will through the control of its main port in Hodeidah, will be when pigs make the discovery that they are aerodynamic!!

And we have the following development, datelined yesterday: Hodeidah cholera cases triple after Saudi/UAE offensive.
