The Saudi-UAE-led coalition advance on the Houthis-controlled port city of al-Hudaydah is slowly appearing to be another failure. By November 14, the coalition had stopped its offensive amid reports abotu a ceasefire reached in the area.
Earlier this week, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mark Lowcock, has called for a ceasefire around of the port city.
“I ask that the parties implement a cessation of hostilities, not least in and around all the infrastructure and facilities on which the aid operation and commercial importers rely,” Lowcock said in a statement on November 13.
If the coalition fully stops its offensive on this key logistical hub, this will be another military defeat of Saudi Arabia and its allies in the conflict.
