Ansar Allah’s exemplary resistance in al-Hudaydah and their fierce battle with the Saudi coalition in these four years have led to al-Hudaydah’s fame and now they call it “Stalingrad of Yemen”!

On November 2017, with the fall of the town of al-Khokhah to the Saudi coalition, the battles on the west coast of Yemen entered al-Hudaydah province. After a year, these battles were extended to the east and north of the city of al-Hudaydah, and finally, with the Stockholm Agreement, on December 18, 2018, the ground clashes were stopped.

Despite the agreement reached by Ansar Allah and Mansour Hadi government, the Saudi coalition bombardment, widespread ceasefire violations, and the siege of Ansar Allah-controlled towns, including the town of al-Durayhami, continued for months. But finally, in the last week, with the withdrawal of the Saudi coalition forces from most of al-Hudaydah province on November 12, 2021, the battle of al-Hudaydah ended.

Ansar Allah exemplary resistance in al-Hudaydah and their fierce battle with the Saudi coalition over the past four years led to al-Hudaydah becoming even more famous. To the extent that these days al-Hudaydah is called “Stalingrad of Yemen”!
