The Coordination Committee for Redeployment confirmed the activation of the pacification mechanism, the strengthening of the ceasefire in Hodeidah and the deployment of monitoring teams in areas of contact between government forces and Houthi militias.

A press release issued by the sixth meeting of the Coordination Committee, which took place from September 8th to 9th on board a UN ship off Hodeidah, said they agreed to activate the calming mechanism and stop the ceasefires agreed by the two sides in July.

The communication indicated that they had agreed to establish and operate the Joint Operations Centre at the Mission's headquarters in Hodeidah, which would include liaison officers and liaison with the two parties, as well as officers and coordination from the United Nations mission.

The Joint Operations Center will be tasked with reducing escalation and dealing with incidents on the ground through direct contact with field liaison officers deployed on the fronts of Hodeidah province.

According to the report, the members of the Commission decided to deploy monitoring teams at four locations on the front lines of the City of Hodeidah as a first step in establishing a ceasefire and reducing suffering and injuries among the civilian population.

Committee members also addressed the technical and practical aspects of the UN Special Envoy's proposal to Yemen on the implementation and stages of the Hodeidah Agreement and will submit their proposals later.
