Evidence mounts of Houthi hand in deadly Hodeidah attack

Evidence mounts of Houthi hand in deadly Hodeidah attack

Last week, a Saudi-led coalition airstrike killed at least five people of a family in the country's northern province of Saada.

"It is a very painful sight, parts of bodies are everywhere around the hospital gates", an eyewitness told Reuters, as Yemeni journalists and American activists intensified calls for the USA media to stop looking the other way while the Trump administration fuels the ongoing massacre of Yemenis with weaponry and intelligence.

Griffiths has been leading efforts to prevent a full-scale coalition assault on the strategic port city of Hodeidah on the Red Sea, which is responsible for more than 70 percent of imports to Yemen and is a vital lifeline for a country already teetering on the brink of starvation.

The conflict escalated dramatically in March 2015, when Saudi Arabia and eight other mostly Sunni Arab states - backed by the US, UK, and France - began air strikes against the Houthis, with the declared aim of restoring Mr Hadi's government.

SANAA, Aug 4 ― A series of explosions Thursday on Yemen's rebel-held port city of Hodeida killed 55 civilians and wounded dozens of others, the Red Cross said, denouncing the "reprehensible" disregard for human life.

"The coalition did not carry out any operations in Hodeidah today", spokesman Col.

Later on Thursday, Griffiths announced plans to invite Yemen's warring parties to Geneva on September 6 to hold the first round of consultations.

His friend, whom he referred to as Dave Brown and who also is friends with Lewis, brought it from Canton. "But we made it work". Once they got into the locker room, we called them up and we had him come out of the door and just kind of show up.

The final statement issued at the end of the rally decried the aggressors' move to abduct the Yemeni women and slammed the United Nations' silence on such crimes committed in the Arab country by the Saudi and Emirati forces.

"These targets were not from the coalition and the weaponry used was mortars, which are from the Houthis", he said.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley voiced strong support for the United Nations effort to bring both sides to the table in Geneva, telling Griffiths that the parties must "understand that they need to work with you".

"Every day this week we have seen new cholera cases in Hodeida, and now this", Grande said.

The movement has been controlling the port since 2014.

Yemen is the world's largest humanitarian crisis with more than 22 million people in need and is seeing a spike in needs, fueled by ongoing conflict, a collapsing economy and diminished social services and livelihoods. "Everything we are trying to do to stem the worlds worst cholera epidemic is at risk".
