This comes during a meeting of the leadership of Hodeidah Governorate and the Red Sea port with the Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and the team of the United Nations mission in the governorate.
The governor of Hodeidah explained that between three to four victims of mines and cluster bombs fall daily in the south of the province, while the US-Saudi aggression prevents the arrival of detectors.
For his part, Muhammad Abu Bakr Ishaq, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Red Sea Ports Corporation, considered that the port of Hodeidah is an essential partner for the United Nations organizations in humanitarian efforts.
Ishaq indicated that the direct damages to targeting the port amounted to 2 billion dollars, and we agreed with the United Nations on an emergency treatment program worth 713 million dollars, and we received only 7 million dollars.
He stressed that piracy on fuel ships is done arbitrarily and in violation of the Geneva Conventions and all international laws.
In turn, Joyce Msuya, Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations, Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator, stated that he noticed mine victims in Al-Thawra Hospital, affirming full commitment to help the Yemeni people.
Meanwhile, David Grisley, the humanitarian coordinator in Yemen, explained that funding for Yemen this year was less than all previous years, and this led to a reduction in food distribution.
David Grisley stressed that the movement is very safe in Hodeidah, and this has helped in carrying out humanitarian work smoothly, adding that mines are a real problem that leaves many victims.
He stressed that the bridge cranes in the port of Hodeidah are a priority, adding that they will work to achieve them and mobilize resources for the port.#Hodeidah #UN #US_Saudi_Aggression 22-10-13
