Yemen’s internationally recognized government criticized on Sunday the silence of the UN Mission to support the Hodeidah Agreement (UNMHA) over Houthi violations, including their latest attack on Mocha port with missiles and bomb-laden drones.

In a series of tweets, Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism Moammar Al-Eryani questioned the UN silence towards the Houthi attack on the id port of Mocha, saying it blatantly violates the UN-sponsored Hodeidah Agreement that was signed in late 2018.

“We are surprised to see UN Head of Mission in Hodeidah and Chairman of Redeployment Coordination Committee, General Abhijit Guha silent towards the Houthi militias’ continued violations of the Sweden Agreement and their attack on the Mocha port, which is a civilian facility and on aid warehouses, endangering the lives of workers,” Al-Eryani said.

Al-Eryani reiterated that the attack must be deemed a war crime, calling on the international community, the UN, and US envoys to take a firm stance against Houthi violations.

The Iran-backed Houthi rebels have recently accelerated their offensives on government areas, including a missile attack on al-Anad air base that claimed about 40 lives, as well as cross-border attacks on neighbouring Saudi Arabia.
