The Saudi-led occupying coalition has launched a fresh military campaign to capture the key port city of Hodeidah, the only port through which essential items such as food and medicine enter war-ravaged and impoverished Yemen.

Middle East/ According to an Iran Press report, Colonel Ali al-Tanniji, the top commander of Saudi-led military forces on the western coast of Yemen, has talked of a new operation to capture and occupy the Yemeni port of Hodeidah.

According to Colonel Ali al-Tanniji, the new military operation has been launched on several fronts. Saudi warplanes bombed various districts of al-Hodeidah on Monday night.

Saudi and UAE military forces have been attacking the Yemeni port city of Hodeidah since 13 June this year, but so far they have had little military success.
