Yemen’s Red Sea Ports Corporation says the western port city of Hudaydah is operating normally despite an Emirati-led push to capture the strategic coastline, which serves as the main conduit for aid flow into the war-torn country.

Yahya Sharaf al-Din, the corporation’s deputy chairman, rejected reports about a halt in the services of the Hudaydah port due to the UAE-led military offensive, which began on Wednesday.

The comments come a day after an Emirati-led offensive on Yemen’s Red Sea port city of Hudaydah went ahead despite stern warnings by the UN and international rights groups against the catastrophic consequences of such a military action.

In the latest developments, Arabic-language al-Masirah television network reported early on Thursday that Saudi artillery attacks had killed two children and injured several others of the same family in the Hayran district of Yemen’s northwestern Hajjah Province.

Separately, al-Masirah reported that Saudi warplanes had dropped cluster bombs on Hajjah’s neighboring province of Sa’ada.
