Saudis positioned to attack food reserves in Yemen's Hudaydah: Houthi
Rasa - Saudi Arabia and its allies are positioned to attack food storage facilities in Yemeni port town of al-Hudaydah, the Houthi Ansarullah Movement has warned.

RNA - The warning came as the Saudi-led coalition this week intensified its military campaign to take over the strategic port.  

 

Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, the chairman of the Supreme Revolutionary Committee of Yemen, revealed in a Twitter post on Thursday that Riyadh had plans to attack food storage facilities and silos across Hudaydah - which is the main conduit for food supplies into the war-torn country - under the false pretext that they were being used to store weapons.

 

He also warned that the coalition was going to target Hudaydah's populated areas with "blind strikes."

 

نحذر هناك خطة لدى دول العدوان الأمريكي السعودي وحلفائه لاستهداف مخازن المنظمات الدولية الاغاثية والمطاحن في الحديدة
تحت مبرر انها ثكنات و مخازن اسلحة اضافة الى الاستهداف العشوائي للمساكن والاحياء المكتظة بالسكان تزامنامع حملة اعلامية تشنها ابواق اعلامهم للتبرير لجرائمها هناك
— محمد علي الحوثي (@Moh_Alhouthi) September 13, 2018

 

Houthi said the decision came amid a media campaign by the aggressors to justify their atrocities in the city.

 

The warnings followed the resumption of relentless attacks by Saudi Arabia and its allies, including the United Arab Emirates, against Yemen after UN-brokered talks between warring parties failed in Geneva last week.

 

The talks were aborted after the UN failed to meet conditions set by Yemen’s Ansarullah movement that included transferring Yemenis who had been wounded as a result of the Saudi-led war to hospitals and also providing guarantees over the safety of the Yemeni delegation attending the talks.

 

Ansarullah also accused Saudi Arabia of planning to strand the Yemeni delegation in Djibouti, where their plane was to make a stop en route to Geneva.

 

 

On Wednesday night, Saudi-led aircraft ended the truce by bombing Hudaydah's Kilo 16 district, killing at least 15 people and injuring dozens more.

 

According to Press TV, Saudi Arabia and its regional allies launched the devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of reinstating former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and crushing the Houthi movement.

 

Some 15,000 Yemenis have been killed and thousands more injured since the start of the Saudi-led aggression.

 

More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world's worst humanitarian disaster.

 

The Saudi-led offensive to wrest control of Hudaydah began in June, with the aim of stopping continued missile strikes by Yemen's army and the Houthis.

 

Despite effectively putting Hudaydah under an extensive aerial and maritime siege, the Saudis insist that the only way to stop what they call a flow of arms and missile parts to the group is by taking the whole city under control.

 

However, the offensive has been far from successful. In fact, the extent of civilian casualties has put the coalition under growing international pressure to end the onslaught.

 

The battle has even prompted reactions from the US and the UK, who have been providing Riyadh with unconditional arms and intelligence support over the course of the war.
