Yemen President Rejects UN Deal to Take Hodeidah, Raising Fear for Civilians

The fate of the Yemeni aid port of Hodeidah is in many ways the fate of millions of civilians across Northern Yemen, who rely on it as a sole source of food and medicine. The city is under attack by Saudi-led forces, and that is a massive risk.

The UN has tried to prevent this by negotiating a takeover of the port, an idea supported by the Houthi rebels who hold it. The deal, however, appears to have failed, with Saudi-backed President Hadi rejecting any deal to let the UN manage the city as an aid port.

Barring any changes, this leaves the Saudi-led forces continuing an invasion, reliant heavily on airstrikes and drawing increasingly near the ports themselves. This raises the likelihood of the port being severely damaged, and inoperable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is precisely what the Butcher of Yemen, Saudi Prince Salman, wants to see happen here.

He will most probably order his military to shoot to kill those with the bad luck to be left alive after the port is taken, including infants; children; women; and the medically fragile elderly.
