The United Nations says nearly 5,000 families have been displaced in Yemen’s western province of Hodeida, whose capital port city has been under unprecedented attacks by a Saudi-led military coalition and militia loyal to the impoverished country’s former government since June 13.

In a statement released on Sunday, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said 4,458 households have been displaced from their homes in Hodeida since June 1.

It added that at least 36 displaced families had already lost their entire livelihood as their farms were damaged in airstrikes by Saudi-led coalition earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Yemen’s official Saba news agency reported that warplanes belonging to the Saudi-led coalition had conducted at least five airstrikes against Hodeida.
