Nine people Houthi fighters have killed and others wounded following rebel attacks on military sites of the Yemeni internationally-recognized government in the southern part of Hodeida port city.

Houthis have launched three assaults, spokesman for the pro-government joint forces has said, "in an attempt to seize sites of joint forces in Doraihimi" district of Hodeida.

The pro-government forces have "successfully fended off the offensive and inflicted the Houthis grave losses, killing 9 and injuring 17 others," Colonel Wadhah al-Dobaish added quoting medical sources at Hodeida hospitals.

The spokesman has not mentioned if the attacks left any casualties among the joint forces.

"Houthi violations have been documented by joint forces' cameras in footages, which are handed to chair of the UN Mission to Support the Hodeida Agreement (UNMHA), General Abhijit Guha.

"We completely believe and realize that the UNMHA doesn't assume its duty with regard to such breaches, after it had its affairs and movements dependent on Houthis," Dobaish said.

Hodeida witnesses sporadic clashes, despite the Gen Guha's recent calls on warring parties to abide by ceasefire as agreed to in the UN-brokered Stockholm Agreement.

Parties to the 4.7-year war in Yemen, after 8-day peace talks in Sweden, reached on the 13th of last December an agreement providing for ceasefire in Hodeida and redeployment of both sides' forces.

Since then, both sides have been trading blames for violating the truce.
