UN gravely concerned over Saudi Arabia's military offensive on Hudaydah

 

The United Nations has voiced grave concern over the attack on Yemeni city of Hudaydah.

"We’re extremely concerned about the situation around Hudaydah. Our colleagues in the area have started to take precautionary measures in terms of ramping up assistance and redefining contingency plans in case of this further escalation," said UN Secretary-General spokesperson Stephane Dujarric on Tuesday.

“Increased fighting would unleash even more internally displaced people,”he added.

Saudi Arabia and its allies launched the war on Yemen in March 2015. In one of the deadliest air raids, Saudi warplanes last month targeted a wedding ceremony in Hajjah several times, killing almost 50 people and wounding 55 others. Saudi jets also carried out raids on the ambulances transporting the casualties to local hospitals.
