Yemen's Hudaida offensive: UN warns of a catastrophe

Many analysts agree that a battle for Hudaida will not draw Yemen’s 3-year war closer to an end.

    The leader of Yemen's Houthi rebels has called on his supporters to fight back against Saudi and Emirati supported government forces, who are closing in on the port city of Hudaida.

    The UN security council - which discussed the battle on Thursday - says the Hudaida port must remain open for humanitarian deliveries.
