Yemen’s Key Port City Faces Clash after Cease-Fire

They say the combat began overnight into Sunday, leaving fires burning on the main front lines in the city

Yemen’s security officials and eyewitnesses say that fighting has erupted in the key port city of Hodeida, the first significant clashes since warring sides agreed to a U.N.-brokered cease-fire deal in December.

They say the combat began overnight into Sunday, leaving fires burning on the main front lines in the city’s east and south, while exchanges of artillery fire shook the beleaguered city.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they weren’t authorized to brief journalists, while witnesses did so for fear of their safety.
