The countries of war coalition against Yemen continue to target civilian homes and enterprises, giving no attention to the provisions and rules of International Humanitarian Law.
The suffocating siege on Al-Durayhimi District of Hodeidah governorate, and the frequent breakthroughs of the Agreement in the absence of the United Nations envoy and his representatives in Hodeidah, is a flagrant violation of the rules and provisions of international humanitarian law. It is also a violation of the ethics of the United Nations, which has been watching with silence and complacency, seen regardless to the implementation of the principles, rules and provisions of international law. It is indeed a crime against the UN itself and its humanitarian and legal agreements that were created to protect human rights from any violations or crimes affecting them anywhere or anytime.
During the month of April 2020, the Saudi-led countries of war coalition against Yemen continued to use their aircrafts to launch a number of air strikes on vital civilian places and facilities in various governorates of the Republic. The war coalition countries and their mercenaries used various heavy and light weapons to target populated areas, despite repeated declarations made by the spokesperson for the war coalition countries against Yemen to cease-fire. It was merely fraud and misleading to the international opinion about the crimes and violations of the countries of war coalition on the Yemeni people who were victims of those crimes and violations, and most of those victims are children and women.
The arbitrary restrictions imposed by the coalition countries continue to prevent the entry of ships and vessels loaded with the basic materials for the lives of Yemenis including foodstuffs, medicine and oil and gas derivatives through Hodeidah seaport. There are still more than 18 ships loaded with oil derivatives and foodstuffs at sea, despite having the UN pass permit documents to enter Hodeidah seaport after inspection.
