Saudi-Led Coalition Storms Yemen’s Hodeidah Airport Compound

The Saudi-led coalition recently stormed the airport in Yemen’s main port city after days of fighting.
According to local news reports, warplanes struck the airport before troops entered the main compound to fight the Iran-backed rebels.
Taking the airport is essential as the coalition of Arab countries promised a quick assault on the city of Hodeidah in order for civilians to continue receiving aid.

Meanwhile, the Saudi-led coalition is urging the Houthi rebels to unconditionally withdraw.
“From our perspective, three years of war is enough,” said Anwar Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs – UAE. “It is time for a political process, and if Houthis don’t want to start the political process, we will force them to start the political process.”
The demand for a complete withdrawal prevents the United Nations from negotiating a peace deal.
The UN is already worried the worst humanitarian crisis in the world will be exacerbated by the fight as civilians across all of Yemen depend on food, water, and medicine from the port city.
