Saudi hostilities with Yemeni people which opposed Saudi meddling in this country has plunged the country into a devastating humanitarian crisis.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 265 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed near 8,000 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi Movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
Today Peace talks on Yemen have begun in Switzerland in a bid to end more than nine months of bloodshed in the country as a highly-anticipated ceasefire begins to take effect.
Saudi Arabia confirmed earlier in the day that the previously proposed truce started on Tuesday.
Houthis, had earlier approved the proposal for holding the ceasefire on the eve of the UN talks.
