Coalition Forces Spokesman further said that "This statement creates a constant state of uncertainty about the information and data on which the United Nations relies and undermines its credibility, information mentioned before by the coalition forces in previous statements, most recently in the report of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for children and armed conflict."
While the official spokesman for the Coalition Forces deplores this biased stance, he stresses the need for the United Nations to review the humanitarian mechanism and the efficiency of its staff working in Yemen and to monitor their performance again, calling on the United Nations to implement the proposals of UN envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed on the seaport of Hodeidah, which have been rejected by Al-Houthis and approved by legitimate Government.
He also stressed the commitment of the coalition to implement the provisions of international humanitarian law, especially on the protection of civilians and the application of the highest standards of international targeting and its keenness to improve the humanitarian situation in Yemen and alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people caused by Al-Houthi militias backed by Iran.
