Fierce battles east of Hodeidah results in the killing of Houthis and fire erupted in a factory


Local and field sources said that fierce battles erupted between government forces and militants of the al-Houthi group, Dawn on Saturday, south of the city of Hodeidah (western Yemen), and led to a fire in a food packaging factory.

In identical statements to Al-Masdar online, al-Houthi militants attacked the positions of the government forces with heavy artillery and medium machine guns in the direction of 50 street  and the eastern entrance of the city.

It noted that the fighting lasted for hours, in areas of contact between the parties.

As a result, a number of the Houthis were killed behind the Coast defense camp, and according to the sources, the bodies of the Houthis remain in the area from which they retreated.

In the context, the fall of the Houthi shells on a number of warehouses at Thabet Brothers Industrial compound damaged a factory and led to a fire in a warehouse, without being clear if it caused casualties among  workers in the factory.

Fighting is being renewed south of Hodeidah, despite the parties to the conflict reaching an agreement to cease fire in Hodeidah and withdraw from it, following Sweden's consultations (6-13 December) sponsored by the United Nations.
