  • Hodeida is one of the most densely populated areas in Yemen (600 000 people) and a critical entry point for life saving imports into Yemen, especially the highlands.

  • An offensive in Hodeida will have devastating consequences on the civilian population living in the city and on millions depending on imports from Hodeida port (approximately 70% of the population of Yemen).
