The Houthi group has denied the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) team access to Doraihimi town in the Red Sea city of Hodeida, the Yemeni government joint forces said Friday.
The rebels have prevented the ICRC team from getting into the town and meeting with civilians, whom the group "is besieging and using as human shield," the Giant Brigades' media center claimed.
The group has also "appropriated the relief aid the ICRC team intended to provide for the civilians there."
The team has been denied access after the Arab coalition and joint forces facilitated the convoy's passage in areas under their control in application of an agreement with the UN, the ICRC and the Houthis, it added.
The Houthis have not allowed the team in "lest their crimes against 80 civilians, they are besieging and using as human shield, are disclosed," according to the center.
Last Tuesday, the joint forces said it had eased the way for a convoy of food assistances provided by the ICRC for Doraihimi town, which has been besieged over more than a year, with the government and Houthi forces trading blames therefor.
