France plans minesweeping operation in Al-Hodeidah Port

The French Ministry of Defense has unveiled a plan for an operation to defuse mines in the Yemeni Al-Hodeidah Port, after the end of the military operation there.

“France is studying the possibility of carrying out a minesweeping operation to provide access to the Yemeni port of Hodeidah once an Arab-led coalition has completed its military operations,” France’s Defense Ministry said in a statement Friday.

The Saudi-led coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen has recently launched a massive military and humanitarian campaign — upon a request from the Yemeni legitimate government — to liberate Al-Hodeidah Port from Houthi militias.
