The UK P&I Club have received the following update from local correspondents.

Fierce fighting is now taking place at the port city of Mokha between legitimate Yemeni army backed by coalition forces and houthi rebels backed by republican guard forces loyal to the ousted Yemeni president Saleh. Next target for the Yemeni army and coalition will be Hodeidah, according to some sources.  Presently, the port of Hodeida is operational despite the fact that coalition air fighters started primer bombing in the vicinity.

We advice Members to exercise caution in the affected areas.
