Hudaida port officials commented on the Saudi-led coalition’s blockade of the facility, Tuesday, amid UN warnings of a growing humanitarian crisis in Yemen as a result of the restrictions.
The Vice President of the Red Sea Ports Directorate, Yahia Sharaf, dismissed reports that some aid had made its way into the port. “What news agencies report is not true, they say that the [perpetrators of] aggression and the enemy coalition allowed the ships to enter. The dock is empty as you can see, if the [perpetrators of] aggression allowed the ships to enter they would have been here at the pier.”
