Intense clashes broke out between Yemen’s government forces and the Houthi rebels in the Red Sea port city of Hodeidah on Wednesday night despite the cease-fire brokered by the United Nations, an army commander told Xinhua.

The army’s commander based in the Hodeidah said on anonymity that intense armed confrontations erupted between pro-government Giants Brigades and the Houthi rebels using heavily weapons in the city’s eastern parts.

He said that fighters of the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels attempted to launch an attack against government-controlled sites near the 22nd May hospital, sparking hours of armed confrontations.

“The army forces succeeded in confronting the Houthi rebels who were attempting to advance into government-controlled areas,” the source said, adding that the “attack was aborted and Houthi attackers were forced to retreat.”
