Yemen's Houthis Begin To Withdraw From Hodeidah Ports Reviving Hopes For Peace

According to a report by Reuters, on Saturday, Yemen's Houthi movement started withdrawing forces from Saleef port in Hodeidah under a UN-sponsored deal that had been stalled for months, reviving hopes for peace efforts to end the four-year long war.

A minister in the Yemeni government backed by Saudi Arabia reportedly dismissed the withdrawal as a 'show' meant to 'misinform the international community.'

The move is reportedly the first major step in implementing the pact reached last year by the government and the Houthis for a truce and troop withdrawal in Hodeidah, a lifeline for millions of Yemenis.
