Over 150 killed in weekend violence around Yemen's Hudaida

Houtis Attack Saudi airbase with Drones in Retaliation to Riyadh's Bombing

The UN children's fund (UNICEF) warned an assault on Hodeida city would jeopardise the lives of Yemenis across the country who depend on its port for humanitarian aid.

The pro-government Yemeni forces on Sunday advanced in the Red Sea coastal city of Hodeidah controlled by the Shiite Houthi rebels after two days of intense battles, local sources said.

Both Tehran and the rebels deny the port is being used to smuggle arms from Iran into Yemen.

He criticized authorities with "other interests" for creating delays in the arrival and distribution of supplies, without elaborating.

Most aid agencies operate in Houthi-held territories where militias impose restrictions on movement and force agencies to use their lists of beneficiaries.

In a plastic washtub, the children's mother collects hard bread crumbs even those covered with mold, then mix with water, add salt, and give to her four children. The UN has already said that a record 22.2 million Yemenis are in dire need of food, including 8.4 million threatened by severe hunger.

The alliance of Sunni Muslim states led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates intervened in Yemen in 2015 to oust the Houthis and restore the internationally recognized government.

Saudi-led coalition warplanes carried out dozens of air strikes to support pro-government forces in the fighting which began on Thursday evening, according to military officials.

The Saudi-led war has also taken a heavy toll on the country's infrastructure, destroying hospitals, schools, and factories. "More than half" of the 14 million people, at serious risk of starvation in the impoverished country, are children, Cappelaere told AFP.

This manager had said on Thursday AFP that 1.8 million children under the age of five years, were in a situation of "acute malnutrition".

Conflict-ravaged Yemen has become a "living hell" for children with thousands dying every year from malnutrition and easily preventable diseases, a top United Nations official said Sunday.

Around 40 percent of the 400,000 are located in and around Hodeida, which has been the target of a stalled coalition offensive in recent months.

The Houthis are still masters of the capital Sana'a and hold other cities like Hodeida, the point of entry for three quarters of Yemen's imports.

Cappelaere said that 30,000 children die of malnutrition each year in Yemen, while a child dies every 10 minutes from easily preventable diseases.

The sources in Hodeidah said fighting was heard in areas near the airport and the university, and Apache helicopters were spotted in the sky.
