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.

Yemeni parliament calls for boycott of UN envoy

The Yemeni parliament on Tuesday called on its government to boycott UN envoy Martin Griffith on the basis that it violated UN resolutions on Yemen.
In a letter addressed to the 0Yemeni Prime Minister Moin Abdul Malik, the parliament said that “the so-called withdrawal of the Houthis (from the ports of Hodeidah) was with the blessing of UN envoy Martin Griffith,” saying that
“is a non-respect to the UN resolutions.”
He added that “the policy adopted by the UN envoy does not lead to achieving the peace we are all wanting and planning for but will result in prolonging the war.”
The statement called on the government to “refrain from dealing with the UN envoy until it retracts from the violation of UN resolutions … and the implementation of the Swedish agreement, which requires the militias to withdraw from Hodeidah and its ports on the Red Sea.”
On May 14, the Houthis announced that they had completed the first phase of redeployment in Hodeidah province and its ports: Hodeidah, Saleef, and Ras Issa.
Last Wednesday, battles broke out between forces loyal to the Yemeni government, and Houthi militants, in the city of Hodeidah.
The Yemeni government accused the Huthi militias of handing over the ports to their agents, in violation of the Swedish agreement.
Last December, the government and the Houthis reached agreement in Sweden on several files, including the situation in Hodeidah, under the auspices of the United Nations.
The agreement is based on the withdrawal of Huthi forces from Hodeidah and its ports by January 7, in order to avoid an attack on the port and a prelude to negotiations to end the war entering its fifth year.

Yemen truce collapses and new battles around Hodeidah port started

Yemen’s army eliminates massive number of Houthis in five day fight
The truce in Yemen is collapsing with the renewed fighting around the port of HODEIDAH, the UN envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffith immediately reacted and warned in a very serious tone about the fightings, and how it threatens the peace plan in full, where the Houthis were supposed to withdraw from the port as well as two other ports on the Red Sea, which began last Monday but is now threatened.
The escalation comes a day after the Houthi attack on two Saudi oil installations using a marlin aircraft. He pointed out that the Yemeni government recognized by the United Nations is deeply suspicious about the commitment of the Huthis to withdraw from Hodeidah and other sites they agreed to withdraw from, adding that the clashes, which broke out shortly after the start of the withdrawal and included a mutual artillery shelling between government forces on the one hand and the Iranian-backed
Houthis on the other have left little opportunity to complete the deal.
