Houthi militia have committed 1,112 violations since the Hodeidah agreement came into force on Dec. 18, 2018, leading to 76 civilian deaths and 492 injuries, according to Saudi state-news agency SPA.

The report said the Houthis continued to target civilian homes, public areas and army positions, using a variety of weapons.

The report confirmed the continued escalation of the militia’s activities, highlighting its targeting of the International Mission for the Implementation of the Stockholm Agreement, which is responsible for redeployment, and its recent targeting of United Nations mills used to store wheat, flour and other relief items.

The report added that the militia continue to strengthen their defensive positions by laying mines and digging trenches and that the militia continued to provoke the Yemeni National Army and the Yemeni Legal Support Coalition in a deliberate attempt to thwart the Stockholm agreement.
