Yemeni Information Minister Muammar al-Iryani dismissed as a farce on Saturday the Iran-backed Houthi militias’ withdrawal from the Red Sea port city of Hodeidah.

“What happened today is a flagrant show, a group of (Houthi) militiamen left (the city) and they were replaced by others wearing coast guard police uniforms,” he told Reuters.

The withdrawal was a “show” meant to “disinform the international community”, he added.
