Washington, Aid organizations warn from the assault on a strategic port Hodeida

US civilian aid organizations have renewed their warning to the Pentagon about the risk of involvement in a military offensive with Saudi Arabia over the port of Hodeidah, saying it would further worsen the famine in parts of the country, already suffering after two years of war. It was mentioned that, the UN World Food Program last week said Yemen is on the brink of “full scale-famine,” and classified seven million people in the country as “severely food insecure.” Scott Paul, a senior policy adviser at Oxfam, said “The likeliest scenario for the Hodeidah operation, involving a lengthy or indefinite closure of the port, would precipitate famine in parts of Yemen over a matter of months, costing many thousands of lives.”
