Houthis begin to withdraw from ports of Hodeidah

Houthi forces began withdrawing from the ports of the city of Hodeidah in the presence of international observers.

 Sources quoted by Sky News that the Iranian-backed Houthi forces began withdrawing from the ports of the city of Hodeidah on the west coast of Yemen.

The United Nations announced on Friday evening that the Houthis would begin withdrawing from the ports of Hodeidah, Ras Issa and al-Saleef on Saturday morning.

The United Nations Redeployment Coordination Committee has confirmed that the unilateral withdrawal would begin at 10 am according to the local time, but it was late in implementing the withdrawal.

Yemeni sources revealed that the Houthis' approval of the withdrawal came after the international envoy, Martin Griffith, persuaded them to avoid any Security Council resolution condemning their intransigence in implementing the redeployment plan agreement in accordance with the Stockholm peace agreement.
