Tawakkol Karman tells The Independent: Hodeidah’s operation will only add to Yemenis’ agony

The Nobel Peace laureate and activist Tawakkol Karman voiced her concern about the battle in the western province of Hodeidah and the fate of the province after its liberation.

"The Hodeidah battle will send more Yemenis into the famine," said Karman in an interview with The Independent newspaper on Wednesday.

She added that this will only add to Yemenis’ agony.

Saudi Arabia and the UAE, she continued, will ban the legitimate government from entering Hodeidah, like they did in Aden.”

“Hodeidah’s operation will leave behind an unprecedented human disaster,” she warned.

“This will not bring peace. It will just replace one militia with another,” Mrs. Karman concluded.
