Assault on Yemen’s Hodeidah Port Could Cost 250,000 Lives, UN Warns
Local Editor

A long-feared assault on Yemen's port city of Hodeidah by the Saudi-led coalition could cost up to 250,000 lives, the United Nations Yemen humanitarian coordinator, Lise Grande, said in a statement on Friday.

"A military attack or siege on Hodeidah will impact hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians," she said.

"In a prolonged worst case, we fear that as many as 250,000 people may lose everything - even their lives."

The Saudi-led war has already driven the entire impoverished country close to the brink of famine amid a crippling blockade which Riyadh claims is aimed at stemming weapons shipments to the country.

According to figures released by the Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights, more than 600,000 people have been martyred or injured in the Saudi war since 2015.
