Yemeni forces backed by Saudi Arabia and the UAE massed around the key port city of Hodeida Wednesday in a bid to seize it from Iran-backed Huthi rebels, Emirati state media reported. “Yemeni resistance forces have increased their readiness for combat in preparation for the battle to liberate Hodeida from the grip of the Huthi militias,” Emirati state news agency WAM said. It quoted a Yemeni military source saying that “large contingents” from the Giants Brigades, National Resistance and Tihama Resistance had reached the outskirts of Hodeida city, backed by sophisticated weapons systems.
