Yemen .. End of the work of the head of the UN mission in Hodeidah

The head of the United Nations Mission in support of the Hodeidah Agreement (UNMHA), General Abhijit Guha, today announced the end of his duties as head of the mission following the Stockholm Agreement promoted by the United Nations three years ago, between the legitimate Yemeni government and the Houthi group.

And the UN mission explained, in a tweet on Twitter that Guha “passed the duties to the deputy head of mission, Daniela Crosslake, until a new head was appointed”, after two years of leading the mission as a third UN official in load.

Guha expressed his pleasure in the practical experience in Yemen, saying, “It is a great honor to serve in this working capacity “and that he will forever be influenced by his experiences in Yemen.

He added: “I express my sincere gratitude to the people of this land who are friendly, resilient and generous”.

Guha noted that one of the mission’s greatest achievements is the sustainable reduction of civilian casualties in Al Hudaydah Governorate.

He said the rate of violence has dropped in significantly and that the population in Hodeidah Governorate “has the opportunity to regain their livelihoods … however, there are still challenges.”

The Indian general mentioned the importance of getting involved in a process of pace lasting, “because war is not inevitable, the people of Hodeidah deserve more and deserve the pace now, “as he stated.

The United Nations Mission in Support of Implementation of the Hodeidah Agreement (UNMHA) was formed in late 2018, according to a UN resolution, to support the Stockholm Agreement, concluded between the Yemeni government and the Houthi militia to spare the city of Hodeidah and neutralize it from the conflict.

Since then, the mission has worked to support the implementation of the agreement, which included a ceasefire in Hodeidah, and to oversee the redeployment of forces in the city and ports of Hodeidah, Salif and Ras Issa. legitimate government.

On April 12, the Yemeni government announced the suspension of its team’s work on the Coordination Committee in Hodeidah governorate until the perpetrators of the killing of Colonel Al-Sulayhi, one of its observers, by the Houthis, and the headquarters of the United Nations mission has been moved in a neutral position freed from the grip of the Houthis.

The succession of the three presidents of the Relocation Committee is an indication of the lack of progress in the work of the committee: from General Patrick Cammaert, they passed from the Danish general Michael Lollesgaard, to the Indian general Abhajit Guha, who barely managed to establish five points of observation of the cease-fire.

From the entrance in force of the Stockholm Agreement and since the ceasefire under the auspices of the United Nations in December 2018, Houthi militias have deliberately committed their humanitarian crimes against innocent civilians by bombing villages, residential neighborhoods and farms in various districts of Hodeidah Governorate.
