ِِAttack on Yemen see port would displace at least 400,000, UN says

An attack on Yemen’s Hodeidah port would displace more than 400,000 people, the UN International Organisation for Migration said yesterday, doubling its previous minimum estimate.
“A minimum of 400,000 people will flee the city eastwards, once Al Hudaydah is under attack,” IOM’s Director of Operations and Emergencies Mohamed Abdiker said in a statement, using a different English spelling for the port’s name. 
The UN has previously warned against any attack by coalition forces on the Houthi-held port, the aid lifeline for millions of people in desperate need of food, saying that 200,000-500,000 people could be displaced.
