In an intervention that observers and military experts viewed as an attempt to save the Houthi militia from defeat in Hodeidah Governorate, the United Nations announced its readiness to facilitate the discussion between the legitimate government and the Houthi militia.
This comes in conjunction with the collapse of the Houthi militia in the southern districts of Hodeidah Governorate, and a significant advance of the joint forces on the West Coast front.
On Sunday evening, the United Nations Mission in Support of the Hudaydah Agreement called on all parties to exercise restraint and take all measures to prevent a military escalation in the south of the governorate.
The mission said in a statement seen by “The Yemeni Scene”: “UNMHA is closely monitoring the events and following up on reports of severe clashes and military escalations that resulted in a large number of civilian casualties in the southern districts of Hodeidah Governorate, especially in Hays and At-Tuhayta.”
The statement added: “Onemha reiterates its appeal to the parties to the conflict to exercise restraint and reminds them of their duty to fulfill their obligations towards protecting civilians and to take all measures to prevent any escalations that might negatively affect the citizens.”
The UN mission, “UNMHA”, confirmed that it stands ready to facilitate the discussion between the concerned parties.
