Yemen has condemned an ongoing wave of Saudi air raids targeting civilian structures including grain silos in the port city of Hudaydah, a lifeline for millions of people in the impoverished country.
Axar.az reports that a statement released on Wednesday, the Ministry of Human Rights said the continuation of “immoral actions” by the Saudi-led coalition in Hudaydah exposed the alliance’s “criminal intent to deliberately annihilate the Yemenis, control and exploit strategic facilities.”
The ministry particularly denounced the US-backed collation’s targeting of Hudaydah’s grain silos, where tens of thousands of tons of wheat and flour are being stored.
Back in June, the Saudi-led coalition launched the Hudaydah offensive despite international warnings that it would compound the war-torn nation’s humanitarian crisis.
The coalition stepped up the campaign in September following the collapse of UN-mediated talks to end the conflict.
Saudi Arabia claims that the Houthis are using the port city for weapons delivery, an allegation rejected by the Yemeni fighters.
So far, the aggressors have been unable to penetrate Houthi defenses in Hudaydah.
