Yemeni informed sources said that the head of the Coordination Committee for the redeployment (RCC) in the province of Hodeida, west of Yemen, General Michael Lollesggaard will resume on Tuesday his meetings with with officers from the UN observer.

Accordings to the source reported  the Saudi daily Al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper that Lollesgaard would hold the meetings in Hodeidah to put forward an implementation mechanism for the redeployment based on the Stockholm Agreement struck between Yemen's legitimate government and Houthis groupe.

The head of truc would also follow up on the observer mission and on the modalities of the pullback of forces since the ceasefire came into force in December.

On December, the two sides agreed to redeploy their forces outside the ports of Hodeidah, Al-Salif and Ras Isa and the city of Hodeidah and to ceasefire as of January 7th. Moreover, they agreed to release prisoners and that the Houthis ease the blockade on the city of Taiz. But nothing has been achieved on the group, with both sides trading blame for non-compliance with the terms agreed in Sweden.

Yemen has been devastated by a four-years conflict which broke out after the Houthi Group (Ansar Allah) ousted the internationally recognised government in late 2014.

The conflict escalated after a Saudi-led coalition intervened militarily in the country in March 2015 to reinstate the government of President Hadi, leaving tens of thousands killed, hundreds of thousands injured, and 3 million displaced.

The Houthis have controlled Hodeida and its ports since late 2014 as joint Yemeni forces loyal to the "legitimate" government and the Saudi-led Arab Coalition are deployed on the outskirts of the city in order to wrest control it from the grip of the Houthis.
