Yemen’s internationally recognized government condemned on Sunday the Iran-backed Houthi rebels for targeting the headquarters of its team in the Redeployment Committee in the port city of Hodeidah.
On late Saturday, the insurgents launched 8 rocket attacks, including 5 drones, targeting the positions of the National Army on the west coast as well as the headquarters of government team in the Redeployment Committee that is tasked with implementing the Hodeidah agreement.
Head of the government team Mohammed Aydha revealed that the headquarters where he and his team were staying survived a Houthi onslaught of five drones and three ballistic missiles.
He warned that such attacks threaten the already shaky truce and the prospect of peace.
According to state-run Saba Net, Yemen’s Foreign Ministry has denounced the Houthi attacks on the headquarters of the government team that is part of a team to monitor the implementation of the UN-sponsored truce in the port city of Hodeidah.
This comes a day after the briefing of the UN envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths who said that there was a growing de-escalation in Yemen’s war in the past two weeks.
