Renewed clashes erupt in Hudaydah despite ceasefire between warring parties

Fresh clashes have erupted between Yemeni Houthi Ansarullah fighters and militants loyal to the country’s Saudi-backed former regime in Hudaydah despite a UN-brokered truce in the vital Red Sea port city.

An AFP correspondent reported artillery and machine-gun exchanges in Hudaydah's south early on Saturday, adding that they abated later in the day.

The renewed fighting came amid a Hudaydah ceasefire, which was reached between Yemen’s warring parties in Sweden in December.

They agreed to the withdrawal of their forces and deployment of UN monitors to the port, the entry point for most of Yemen’s vital aid and commercial goods.
