After nearly four years of conflict in Yemen, home to what the United Nations calls the world's worst humanitarian catastrophe, the United States and Britain are now pressing Saudi Arabia and its allies to end the war against the Iran-backed Houthi rebels.The Houthis' media office said that airstrikes had hit civilians in Jarahi, west of Hodeida city.Despite U.N. warnings that an attack on the port could trigger a humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen, Hodeida itself was hit Monday night by what multiple sources said were two airstrikes, the first attack made on the docks since government forces launched a major offensive to retake the port five months ago.The Houthis, who seized Hodeida in a 2014 takeover that included the capital, Tuesday accused the government of the attacks on the port via their Al-Masirah TV.U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres has warned the destruction of the Hodeida port could trigger a "catastrophic" situation in a country where 14 million people are at risk of starvation.
