217 civilians killed in Hodiedah since Stockholm Agreement

217 civilians have been killed and 2152 wounded in the port city of Hodeidah since the Stockholm Agreement that was signed in December 2018, the press office of al-Weyat al-Amaliqa, or the Giants Brigades, said in a statement.

It accused Iran-aligned Houthi insurgents of the deaths and injuries of civilians, saying that the casualties fell victim to Houthi violations of the UN-sponsored truce in the flashpoint port city of Hodeidah.

The casualties, most of them children and women, have been killed due to Houthi violations, ranging from indiscriminate shelling on populated areas to random planting of landmines, the statement said.

It also blamed the UN and the international community for their unjustified silence towards Houthi violations.

In late 2018, representatives of the internationally recognized government and Houthi rebels held peace talks in Sweden that resulted in a ceasefire truce and the agreement of redeployment of troops in Hodiedah province.

Since then, little has been achieved, for the rebels went on breaching the ceasefire and impeding the implementation of troops redeployment.
