Yemen’s Hodeidah truce: UN observers to monitor ceasefire

The ceasefire has been extremely fragile and shaky with numerous violations reported.

The United Nations Security Council has voted unanimously to deploy up to 75 observers to Yemen‘s port city of Hodeidah.

The monitors will be sent for six months to supervise a ceasefire and the withdrawal of rival forces – following a truce deal signed in Sweden last month.

Most of Yemen’s food and medicine passes through Hodeidah’s port.
