Asbahi praises Moroccan support to the Yemeni people and government
Yemen's Ambassador to Morocco, Ez Al-Deen Al-Asbahi hailed Morocco's king and government for their support to the Yemeni people and the Yemeni government's efforts to restore state institutions back from Houthi rebels.
During a meeting with the Moroccan Justice Minister Mohamed Ogar, al-Asbahi reviewed the developments in Yemeni arena from various political and humanitarian aspects, especially the developments in Hodeidah province.
He stressed the importance of recapturing the country's west coastline from Houthi insurgents' hands to secure international shipping and arrival of humanitarian aid to Yemen.
He said that the government, backed by the Arab Coalition, is keen to carefully purge the port city of Hodeidah from the militants without destroying the infrastructure or subjecting the population to a disaster.
He said that the militia seems to have planned to steer the course of any coming battle to a mass destruction and this is evident from their planting of ubiquitous of landmines and booby traps and digging of trenches inside the city. He said the militia wants to entrap the Hodeidah people to use them as hostages, in the same manner they do in the city of Taiz which they have been besieging for years.
