Hodeida (Debriefer) - The Houthi-appointed Hodeida security director has stormed a UN-run clinic the Yemeni western governorate, the government-appointed deputy governor of Hodeida tweeted late on Tuesday.
Hadi al-Kohlani raided the WFP clinic, prevented any Covid-19 vaccination and looted shots assigned for UN staff, Walid al-Qodaimi added.
It is now an actual must to relocate the UN mission office to a neutral area, the government official argued.
"No measure has been taken by the UN Mission to Support the Hodeida Agreement (UNMHA) or the UN envoy office in Yemen" in response to the Houthi act, he added.
No immediate comment has been released by the WFP, UNMHA or Houthi group on the Yemeni official's charge.
Parties to the 7-year war in Yemen, after 8 days of peace talks in Sweden, reached on 13 December 2018 an agreement providing for ceasefire in Hodeida and redeployment of both sides' forces and allowing for UN leading role in the port city.
According to Human Rights Watch, the Iranian-backed Houthi group adopts misleading policy on Covid-19 and undermines international efforts to distribute vaccines against the pandemic in Yemeni provinces under its control.
