Saudis violate truce in Yemen 47 times


The Saudi forces have violated truce agreement in Al Hudaydah port city, western Yemen 47 times over the past 24 hours.

According to Yemeni TV Channel ‘Al-Masirah’, Brigadier General Yahya Saree urged Yemeni army and the popular committees to avoid any reaction to breach of ceasefire.

Saudi jet fighters kept flying over the area at the same time when the UN delegation entered Al Hudaydah, he added.

The delegation headed by Patrick Cammaert arrived at El Edén International Airport in south of Yemen early Sunday to meet Ansarullah officials on al-Hudaydah ceasefire.

Meanwhile, Saudi forces shot 27 artillery shells to residential areas and to Yemeni army’s positions, he noted.

The United Nations Security Council enacted resolution 2451 to support the Stockholm Agreement on deployment of a team in order to facilitate monitoring and implementing the Agreement and establishing truce in important Yemeni ports.

The resolution mainly focuses on sending essential commodities to the Yemeni people, supporting the Stockholm Agreement, assigning the Secretary-General of the United Nations to implement it and observing the ceasefire.

The fourth round of Yemen peace talks kicked off on December 6 in Stockholm, Sweden with the attendance of the UN special envoy Martin Griffith and the government representatives, and agreed to establish truce in Yemeni ports of al-Hudaydah, al-Salif, and Ayn Issa.

Saudi Arabia and its regional allies attacked Yemen in March 2015 to bring back to power the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Since then, the invaders have committed horrible war crimes against Yemeni civilians.
