Yemen: NO withdrawal of Houthi from Hodeidah , NO UN inspection

The internationally recognized  Yemeni government tied on Wednesday the implementation of the  UN inspection and verification mechanism at the ports of Hodeidah  to the withdrawal of the Huthi militia from the Red Sea coastal city of Yemen.

No withdrawal no IVM

The Deputy Foreign Minister of Yemen, Mohammad Hadrami, said that the implementation of the mechanism “will only be achieved in the required way if  the implementation of the Hodeidah agreement (the withdrawal of Houthis from the city and ports of Hodeidah agreed upon the Stockholm Agreement) is implemented .”

Al-Hadrami warned of “the dangers of the deterioration of the status of Safer oil floating tank in the port of RasIssa in Hodeidah and the

Houthiscontiniousobstruction and opposition to the UN teams to reach it, despite the government’s efforts to avoid a serious environmental disaster that will affect Yemen and the whole region.”

The meeting discussed  the operation of  mechanism implementation in the ports of the Red Sea in accordance with the Stockholm Agreement and discussing the risks of the deterioration of the floating saafer tank in RasIssa.

The Yemeni Deputy Foreigne  Minister said that the  Houthis, “are responsible of the obstruction of the international assessment to  Saffar,” which contains more than one million barrels of oil, calling on the

United Nations to “bear its legal and moral responsibility and put pressure on the Houthis by all means.”

“The mechanism is keen to facilitate the smooth flow of goods and services to Yemeni ports while ensuring compliance with the arms embargo pursuant to UN Security Council Resolution 2216,” the head of the United Nations verification and inspection mechanism said. Praising the interaction and keenness of the legitimate government to address the status of the reservoir and provide all the necessary facilities for the United Nations team. “

The United Nations verification and inspection mechanism was established in Yemen in 2015 with the Alliance accusing the Houthis of smuggling Iranian missiles and weapons through Yemeni ports under their control, including Hodeidah.

Yemen… The United Nations reached an agreement with the Houthis to resume the distribution of food

The World Food Program (WFP) chief has reached an initial agreement with Yemen’s Houthi group Ansar Allah to resume the distribution of food aid in the areas it controls.

“The agreement will allow the rapid distribution of food in Sana’a, although the two sides have not formally signed the agreement yet,” said WFP World Program Director David Paisley.”

I can say that we have made great progress,” he said. “There are about 30 million people living in Yemen, more than two-thirds of whom are food insecure, and that means20 million women, men, boys, and girls.

“The ceasefire in the port of Hodeidah may finally allow us to focus on the political process before the end of this summer,” warned UN envoy Martin Griffith of Yemen.

Millions of Yemenis suffer from malnutrition after four years of civil war, but the United Nations suspended food aid distributions in the Houthi control areas last month after accusations of “embezzlement” and failure to deliver aid to its beneficiaries.

Yemen army and Coalition bomb a Houthi camp in Ibb province in central Yemen

The Yemen-based Coalition for Support of Legitimacy launched Sunday air strikes targeting locations and rallies of Houthi militia in one of the camps in central Yemen’s Ibb province.
A Yemeni source told the press that the coalition fighters launched 4 air raids on Houthi groups in Al-Hamzah camp in al-Sabra district in the southeast of the province. The Houthis suffered heavy losses.
The raids came two days after similar air strikes targeting
Huthi positions in the same camp.
Coalition and Yemen army have targeted the camp, which is located on the line between the governorates of Ibb and Dhaliyah, dozens of times. It is one of the most important Huthi training camps used by the militia in conducting military operations in the governorates of Taiz, Dali, and Hodeidah.
A senior leader of the Iranian-backed Houthi militia was killed in a strike by the Yemeni army in Hodeidah, west of the country.
The leader was killed in a preemptive strike by the Yemeni army during his response to the Huthi attack in Hodeidah. The terrorist leader, “Talib Sufyan,” a militia commander on the west coast of Hodeidah, took over the command of
six large-scale military operations inside the city during the past few weeks.
The 40-year-old Sufian, from the Sohar district of Saada, was a close associate of the founder of the militia, Hussein Badr al-Din al-Huthi, who was killed by the Yemeni army in September 2004.

Yemen refuses to renegotiate Stockholm agreement

The Yemeni government confirmed on Sunday its refusal to renegotiate the Stockholm agreement and reiterated its commitment to the withdrawal of the Huthi militia from the province of Hodeidah and its ports in order to properly
implement the agreement that has been in effect for more than half a year.
During a meeting with British Ambassador to Yemen Fiona Walker, Yemeni Deputy Foreign Minister Mohammad al- Hadrami called for the activation of the role of the Coordination Committee for the redeployment in Hodeidah, including the tripartite monitoring mechanism.
He stressed the need for a real and complete withdrawal of the Huthi militias from the city and ports of Hodeidah, Salif and Ras Issa. He noted that the Government would re-engage positively with the efforts of UN Envoy Martin Griffith to bring the peace process back on track, in accordance with the three
terms of reference and the essence and spirit of the Sweden Agreement.
He said that this does not mean accepting the actions of the Huthis of the so-called “unilateral withdrawal”, and that the government’s approach will focus on re-routing and correcting the peace process according to what was agreed
upon.
Hadrami stressed that it is important that the United Nations mandate be implemented in connection with the implementation of the Hodeidah Agreement. “The mandate of the UNSCOM and the UN mission to implement the Hodeidah agreement does not include a renegotiation of the Stockholm agreement by the United Nations, but rather an implementation of what has been agreed upon – the withdrawal of the Huthis from the city and ports of Hodeidah.”
The Yemeni official stressed the importance of understanding the fact that the failure to expose the obstruction of the Houthis to the agreement during the process of UN mediation, does not help the UN envoy, but make it a more difficult task.

Government of Yemen calls for correcting the course of ‘redeployment’ Hodeidah

Danish General Michael Lawlessard, the international chief observer in Yemen’s Hodeidah, and the Yemeni government team urged the reactivation of redeployment meetings in the city and ports of Hodeidah in the context
of restoring trust between the Yemeni government and the United Nations.
An official source said that the meeting of the government team with the redeployment committee and the head of the committee of the Loesgaard in Aden did not produce any results and the meetings were postponed until after
Eid al-Fitr.
The government team renewed its rejection of the play of withdrawal in the ports of Hodeidah, expressing regret that this happens with international blessing under the pretext of lack of confidence and flexibility and it is
tantamount to legitimacy and go beyond the Stockholm agreement and the latest modified plan related to Hodeidah.
The team requested quick formula to correct the course of implementation of the redeployment phase of the withdrawals in the ports of Hodeidah and to evaluate the situation by acts and reviewing the mechanisms of the agreement from the point that it deviated from before it is too late.
The relationship between the Yemeni government and the United Nations are very tensed, particularly with the international envoy Martin Griffith, who welcomed at a Security Council session in mid-May the alleged announcement of the unilateral redeployment by Houthi militias without allowing the tripartite commission to monitor it.

UNDP is prepared to assist enhance facilities at new demilitarized Hodeidah port

Since military and security forces leave Hodeidah, Ras al-Isa and Salif ports, the United Nations Development Programme is prepared to help develop the efficiency and efficiency of the ports.

“Hodeidah port is the lifeline for the north of Yemen,” said Ms. Lise Grande, UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen.

Ms. Grande said, “Upgrading the facilities at the ports is urgent,”. “It is a race against a chance to move food, fuel, medicines, along with other vital commodities as fast and easily as is possible to the millions of people across the nation who rely on humanitarian assistance .”

When redeployment is finalized, UNDP will help to upgrade port facilities including watchtowers, berths along with the navigation stations.

UNDP said, “This is stage among our crucial endeavors to bring back regular at these ports,” said Auke Lootsma, UNDP Yemen’s Resident Representative. “We are sketching upon our extensive experience, along with national and international expertise, to ensure we can completely bring back the performance of the ports as soon as possible .”

The redeployment follows responsibilities made in the Stockholm Agreement in December 2019, which has been supported by the UN Mission to Support the Hodeidah Agreement ( UNMHA), UNDP, the World Food Program and many other UN agencies.

“Twenty million Yemenis are food insecure and thousands and thousands of people are at risk of cholera,” said Ms. Grande. “The UN is willing to do everything UNDP can to make the Stockholm Agreement a success .”

Yemen is the world’s most awful humanitarian crisis. The 2019 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan ( YHRP ) needs US$4 .2 billion. However, is actually only 20 percent funded. The United Nations is appealing to donors to give money as soon as possible.
