US-UK supporting attacks on Al Hudaydah: Yemeni official

Yemeni Ansarullah spokesman Mohammad Abdol Salam said that strikes on Al Hudaydah Port have been organized by US and UK and Saudi Arabia and the UAE are not able to perform them alone.

The American, British and French warships are in Al Hudaydah to conduct missile and air attacks on Yemen, Abdol Salam was quoted by Yemeni TV Channel 'Al Masirah' as saying.

'Conflicts in western coasts of Yemen are different from those in southern parts,' he said, adding that the aggressor coalitions is responsible for humanitarian crises.

'Despite the fact that UN Special Envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths has been to San'aa several times and has held talks with Yemeni officials to find a political solution to the crisis, if he does what the ex-envoy Ismail Valad Sheikh Ahmad did he will fail,' he added.

UN envoy has so far done nothing for solving the crisis in Yemen, he said, adding that his acts are just aimed to cover coalition's aggression and he is playing a biased role, Abdol Salam noted.

He went on to say that enemies were defeated in western front so they are waging a psychological war.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies, which attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, have recently launched a major attack to seize the Yemeni Al Hudaydah Port on the Red Sea. The port is the main way of providing the war-torn country with humanitarian aid.

The International Crisis Group earlier, referring to situation in Al Hudaydah Port, warned that the Yemen war has entered a new phase.
