Yemen: US ‘fully responsible’ for deadly attack on Hodeidah port -Health Ministry spox.

Yemen's Ministry of Health blamed US and the UN in general for allowing Saudi-led strikes to hit a fishing port in Hodeidah killing more than 26 people, its spokesman said in press conference in Sanaa on Friday. «The United States bears full responsibility because the United Nations, its organizations and the international community have remained silent in the face of the aggression of the... Еще American-Israeli coalition and its Saudi and UAE and their crimes for more than 2,220 days ago,» claimed spokesman of the Yemeni Ministry of Health Dr. Yousuf Al-Hazzari. More than 26 people have been killed and dozens were injured after a Saudi-led coalition airstrike hit a fishing port in Hodeidah on Thursday. The Saudi-led coalition has not yet confirmed that it was responsible for the air strike. Saudi-backed Yemeni government forces launched an offensive earlier in June to take back the Houthi-controlled areas of Hajjah, Taiz and South Hodeidah. The Saudi-led war in Yemen started in 2015 as an attempt to crush Houthi rebels in the region and reinstall former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. The port of Hodeidah is Yemen's main point of entry for food aid. With 8.4 million Yemeni people forced to the brink of starvation according to UN figures, the country has been plunged into a severe humanitarian crisis amid its ongoing conflict.
