YEMEN – Forces of the Saudi-led coalition (backed by the United States) were poised to enter the airport of Yemen’s main port, Hodeidah, today and seize the city. The present attack is said to be the biggest battle since the war began.

The new brazen attack on the port city of Hodeida will create an even bigger humanitarian catastrophe.

Most food, fuel and medicine which civilians rely on comes through the Hodeidah port.

Aid agencies have warned that hundreds of thousands of people are now trapped.

The war devastating Yemen is now in its fourth year. Human rights organizations have repeatedly accused the US-backed Saudi-led coalition of targeting civilian areas.
