How could Washington give #AnsarAllah reason to see a ceasefire as a better path than continued warfare?

To begin, the U.S. could demonstrate goodwill by convincing Saudi Arabia to end the blockade of #Yemen, including the airport in Sana’a and
the port at #Hodeida, both under #Houthi control.

Such a step would signal the #Biden administration’s commitment to concrete steps aimed at helping to wind down this conflict and address unfolding humanitarian concerns. In the process, if the #Saudis agree to lifting the
blockade, the #Houthis could, in turn, agree to halt all attacks on #Saudi territory to address #Riyadh’s legitimate security concerns.

Regardless of how the Biden administration approaches the #Houthi movement, it is safe to say that the future of large areas of northern

suspended for four years; and they came to the fifth year without a solution to the crisis of salary interruption. However, various local and international efforts and attempts to resolve this complicated file, which has become a card in the hands of the

of fuel ships by the US-Saudi aggression coalition and not allowing them to unload their shipments at the port of #Hodeida despite having obtained the permits of the United Nations verification and inspection mission, in a flagrant violation of human rights.

Our colleague @cbatallasICRC left Aden after 18 months.

5 reasons why #YemenCantWait in his own words. #Thread:

"After 22 years as a humanitarian worker, I wouldn't have thought I could be so shocked by the fact that the int'l community is unable to prevent so much suffering.
1. Health care:

It´s quite shocking to see a medical facility full of people who haven't been paid in I don´t know how many months.

A broken system which somehow has to cope with the influx of wounded civilians. Some hospitals in Aden have just 3 hours of electricity a day.
They have some bandages, some aspirins… they have no materials but still, there they are.

These hospitals have nothing because the health system has been broken for the past 3 years.

But still, they are working. We´re supporting all these places with our medical staff.

Yemen: Our colleagues still on the ground in #Hodeida share what they're seeing in a city bracing for the worst. #thread
Civilians in the city are under immense pressure.

You can feel the tension in the streets. Instead of focusing on celebrating #Eid with their families, people are stocking up on food and fuel to survive.

They fear a siege.
#Hodeida was a vibrant city. It was the main entry point for commercial goods and home to some 35,000 fishermen.

Today the streets are nearly empty.
