Houthi militia is still using civilians as ‘human shields’: Coalition Spokesperson

  • The political diplomatic solution is always optimal for the Yemeni people
  • The Houthi militia is imposing restrictions on the relief work and the UN staff

JEDDAH: The coalition in support of legitimacy for Yemen has many options in Hodeidah, including a lightning military operation, coalition spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki told a news conference in Brussels.
“The political diplomatic solution is always optimal for the Yemeni people, stressing that the coalition continues to work to restore Yemeni legitimacy,” Al-Maliki said.
He added that a lightning military operation against the Houthi militia was an available option, noting that the safety of Yemeni civilians is a top priority and any concession or proposal of the Houthi militia must be through the UN envoy to Yemen.
Al-Maliki said the coalition provides all facilities for the entry of medical and food aid to Hodeidah, stressing that the liberation of Hodeidah will affect all Yemenis and will stop the illegal collection of money.
“We are working to distribute aid on Yemeni territory without any discrimination. The Houthi militia is imposing restrictions on the relief work and the UN staff,” he said, adding that the liberation of Hodeidah would cut the vital artery to arming the Houthi militia.
