WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday he had certified to Congress that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were working to avoid harming civilians in Yemen, clearing the way for continued US help for its ally Saudi Arabia.

The joint Yemeni Resistance Forces, led by the Al Amalaqah Brigades (Arabic for Giants), have taken control of the “Kilometre 10” area and have succeeded in cutting all the supply lines of the Houthi militia to the “Kilometre 16” area in the province of Hodeidah. The “Kilometrre 16” area is a key point on the route between Hodeidah and Sanaa.

Pompeo said in a statement he had advised Congress on Tuesday that “the governments of Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates are undertaking demonstrable actions to reduce the risk of harm to civilians and civilian infrastructure resulting from military operations of these governments.”

Meanwhile, the Saudi-led Arab Coalition said that it has observed attempts at sabotage being carried out by the Iran-aligned Houthi militia in the Kilometre 16 area in the Governorate of Hodeidah.
