Saudi-led coalition ready to use "calibrated force" to push Yemen port deal -UAE

DUBAI, Jan 30 (Reuters) - The Saudi-led coalition is prepared to use “calibrated force” to push the Iranian-aligned Houthi movement to withdraw from Yemen’s Hodeidah port city under a U.N.-sponsored deal, a senior United Arab Emirates official said on Wednesday.

Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said the coalition struck 10 Houthi training camps outside Hodeidah governorate on Wednesday.

“Coalition prepared to use more calibrated force to prod Houthi compliance with Stockholm Agreement,” he tweeted. (Reporting by Ghaida Ghantous; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
