aden - Soldiers supported by a coalition of Arab countries have acquired the airport of Hodeidah, the most important port city of Yemen. That reports the media agency of the Jeminite forces.
Hodeidah is occupied by Houthi rebels. The port is an important release point for relief supplies for the suffering population of Yemen. The control of the airport would be an important success for the coalition in the three-year war.
'The armed forces, supported by the resistance and the Arab alliance have liberated the international airport of Hodeidah from the grip of the Houthi militias,' the media agency reported on Twitter on Saturday.
