A Statement by the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen Regarding Hodeida Governorate
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 14 - 02 - 2019

It is widely known that the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen's states have responded to HE Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, the President of Yemen's request under Article 51 of the UN Charter "the inherent right of self-defence", the Charter of the Arab League and the Arab League's Joint Defence Treaty, in order to save and protect the people of Yemen from the Iran-backed Houthi militia and restore legitimacy. The Coalition launched military operations to liberate an international vital area from the grasp of the "coup militia". By doing so, the Coalition recognizes the global importance of the Red Sea maritime lanes, and the actual, direct threat against them due to the presence of the "coup militia" backed by Iran, the importance of Hodeida City to the "coup militia" as a crossing-point of illegal and lethal weapons, and the importance of the city as a vital access point for humanitarian aid to Yemen, which the "coup militia" continues to obstruct.
Coalition and Yemeni legitimacy forces have succeeded in liberating large areas in Yemen, up until reaching the outskirts of Hodeida City, which has exerted pressure on the "coup militia", forcing it through the Stockholm Agreement to accept withdrawal from Hodeida city and ports under UN supervision.
It has been over (6) weeks since the Stockholm Agreement, to which the Coalition and legitimacy forces have fully committed themselves through all aspects of the ceasefire, and exhibited total discipline against the dangerous provocations that have exceeded (1400) violations by the coup militia, through which many martyrs and injured have fallen.
In addition, throughout the (6) weeks removed from the Sweden Agreement, no significant progress has been recorded in the implementation of said agreement. All signs indicate that the coup militia is not interested in implementing the articles of the Agreement. In fact, they are intentionally hindering the implementation to gain time to build their military capabilities in the city and governorate.
From the diligent concern of the Arab Coalition regarding the continued success of the Stockholm Agreement, and in support of the political process spearheaded by the Special Envoy for Yemen, the Coalition forces reaffirm their willingness to the redeployment under the Stockholm Agreement, and call upon the United Nations and the Special Envoy for Yemen to exert pressure on the coup militia to implement the Stockholm Agreement, and hold the militia responsible for its failure.
The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen, holds the Houthi coup militia responsible as well for its participation in hostilities, which undermines the Stockholm Agreement, and threatens security, stability, freedom of navigation and the flow of humanitarian aid, and calls on the United Nations to exert more pressure to force the coup militia to implement the articles of the Stockholm Agreement.
