BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 P.M.) – The Houthi forces have withdrawn from the strategic Hodeidah Port in western Yemen, the group’s official media wing reported this afternoon.
According to the reports, the Houthi forces withdrew from the Hodeidah Port as part of the U.N. ceasefire initiative in the province.
The U.N. will now monitor the port and make sure that humanitarian aid reaches the people in Yemen.
The U.N.-sponsored ceasefire in Hodeidah has been holding across the province, despite some occasional breaches by both warring parties.
Most of the fighting in Yemen is now taking place in the northern part of the country, where the Saudi-led Coalition is trying to regain a foothold.
