The Arab Coalition has paused its offensive in Hodeidah, as announced on Sunday by UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr Anwar Gargash. This is in the hopes of giving UN special envoy Martin Griffiths enough time to implement his peace plan.

With the liberation of Hodeidah from Houthi control imminent, the Coalition now looks to negotiate Houthi withdrawal from rebel-held Sanaa.

The Coalition is also welcoming a larger media presence in Yemen to combat Iranian influence and propaganda. The National will be sending correspondent Gareth Browne to Yemen to report from the ground, and he joined host Naser Al Wasmi in studio to assess the situation in Yemen in this week's Beyond the Headlines.
