Houthi militias attempt to take control on Midi port located in Hajja governorate, local sources have affirmed, pointing out that armed fighters constantly go to coasts of the port at nights and depart at days.
Local sources said that four armed vehicles of the Houth arrived to the area, reiterating that they strongly seek to capture the port.
The Houthi group could take control on Saada governorate in 2011 after protests broke out against the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh across Yemen.
It sought to capture Hajja and Amran, but it failed after it was faced with vivid resistance by tribesmen.
Media sources affirmed that t he absence of security forces at Midi made the Houthi seek to put it hand on its port.
The local sources indicated that Houthi fighters receive training nearby the port, emphasizing that the militia warn locals of approaching to some locations.
According to tribal sources, the Houthi group has set up three training camps in Saada and Amran, pointing out that it receives weapons from Iran and Lebanon.
The sources added that the group operates to recruit fighters, particularly children, from Saada, Sana'a, Hajja and al-Jawaf governorates and train them at different fighting ways .
Yemeni analysts accuse Iran of supporting the Houthi group with funds and weapons and seeking to create a proxy group in Yemen after it loses Al-Assad regime in Syria.
The US Ambassador to Yemen Gerald Feierstein had frequently cautioned against Iranian intervention in Yemen, indicating that Iran seeks to spark troubles in Yemen through supporting the Saada-based Houthi group
