Russian Federation suspends diplomatic presence in Yemen over security situation

Saudi-led raid on police camp in Sanaa leaves at least 39 Yemenis dead – report

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswomen Maria Zakharova appeared to confirm the report later Tuesday, saying Moscow had "temporarily" suspended its diplomatic presence in Yemen.

Green said he was "deeply concerned on so many fronts" about the crisis in Yemen, but in particular the failure to get fuel into the country so people have access to clean water.

Commander of the Arab Coalition Forces on the west coast of Yemen Brigadier-General Abdul Salam al-Shehhi said in a statement to the Emirates News Agency, WAM, that the Houthi militias have suffered a "major collapse" in their defenses, adding that hundreds of their dead, injured, and captured elements have been treated according to International Laws.

Yemen has remained dogged by violence and chaos since 2014, when the Houthis overran much of the country, including capital Sanaa, which remains under Houthi control.

A military commander in the Coalition for the Support of the Legitimacy in Yemen announced the initiative of the Yemeni Republican Guard in cooperation with the coalition forces and the legitimate government to liberate Yemen from the Houthis.

Saudi-led forces in Yemen have opened a new front in the country's civil war beginning an advance on its main port and route for vital food supplies.

The fighting has led to a humanitarian crisis in Yemen, where civilians are facing starvation and disease.

Russian Federation has announced it is suspending its diplomatic presence in Yemen and relocating its diplomats to the Saudi capital Riyadh. Saudi Arabia reopened some ports, but humanitarian organizations said it wasn't enough. Saudi media reported Thursday that the country's air defenses shot down another Houthi-fired missile.

On Monday, the United Nations again called on all blockades to be lifted for better access to more than 8 million people "on the verge of starvation".

"I am greatly alarmed at reports of hospitals being damaged, populations being impeded from fleeing to safe areas and killings and arbitrary detentions reportedly being carried out in Sanaa", he said.
