Local tribes congregated on Sunday in Sanaa to demonstrate their support to the pro-Houthi army and willingness to fight the Saudi-led coalition for the port of Hodaidah.

Cars carrying fighters and loaded with ammunition arrived in the city, with tribesmen saying they are headed for the coast “to defeat the Saudi and American enemies.”

The port of Hodeidah is Yemen’s main point of entry for food aid.

With 8.4 million Yemeni people forced to the brink of starvation according to UN figures, the country has been plunged into a severe humanitarian crisis amid its ongoing conflict.
