Sporadic clashes have been reported in the western Yemen port city of al-Hudaydah soon after a UN-brokered ceasefire takes force in the province of the same name.

The violence broke out in the city’s eastern areas in early Tuesday minutes after the truce took effect at midnight, an official allied with Yemen’s Saudi-backed former government told AFP.

International medical aid group Doctors Without Borders (MSF) voiced alarm about “the continuous fighting” in the devastated city. It said its teams were treating victims of gunshots, shelling, and airstrikes, urging the concerned parties “to respect the presence of civilians and health infrastructures.”
