  • Conflict and port status: Military operations in Al Hudaydah have lessened recently, while sporadic shelling and airstrikes hit some districts, including Zabid and Bait Al Faqih. Clashes are raging in AlTohaita District. Several main roads in the city remain blocked, whereas the port is still operational. 
  • Hospital-based casualty data: Based on hospital-based figures of casualties in Al Hudaydah, 46 people were killed and 328 others injured. The actual number of casualties including those flighting is much higher but not reported.  
  • Movement of IDPs: According to the National Authority for the Management and coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (NAMCHA), over 12,000 displaced families, who fled from Al Hudaydah, have been registered in Sana’a. Other IDPs also fled from Al Hudaydah to Dhamar and Ibb governorates. Humanitarian partners have registered over 17,000 displaced families. 
  • Hospital and health facilities situation: Although the recent Health Resources Availability Monitoring System (HeRAMS) data shows that 91% of health facilities in Al Hudaydah are functioning, many of those facilities are struggling to cope with the increasing health needs and they are at increased risk of damage if the fighting continues to progress towards the city. Reports continue to be received of limited health services due to a lack of staff. Interrupted electricity constitutes a major challenge to hospitals in Al Hudaydah, especially the main two hospitals (Al-Thawra and Al-Olofi).
