Yemen accuses Saudis of breaching truce 306 times

Tehran, Jan 22, IRNA - Yemeni Armed Forces spokesman has accused the Saudi-led coalition of repeatedly breaching ceasefire agreement in Yemen, saying that it has violated the truce 306 times over the last 48 hours.

According to the Yemeni media 'Al-Masirah', Brigadier General Yahya Saree said on Monday that the Saudi forces targeted various areas in Al Hudaydah with missiles and mortar shells.

Meanwhile, Saudi jetfighters bombarded various areas like Taiz, Sana'a, Saada, Al Jawf and Hajjah.

Saree added that Yemeni forces have conducted 15 operations on Saudi forces' positions.

The United Nations Security Council adopted 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 in Stockholm, Sweden on December 6 with the attendance of the UN special envoy Martin Griffith and the government representatives. It 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.
