Saudi-led coalition to allow cranes into Yemen's Hodeidah port

Reuters , Wednesday 20 Dec 2017

The Saudi-led coalition will allow four cranes into the Houthi-controlled port of Hodeidah to boost humanitarian aid deliveries into war-torn Yemen, the Saudi ambassador to Sanaa said on Wednesday.

Saudi-led forces blocked the port for more than three weeks last month in response to Houthi missile attacks, adding to food shortages in Yemen. A coalition spokesman said on Wednesday the Houthis had fired 83 ballistic missiles towards the kingdom since the war started in 2015.
