Yemen accuses Saudi Coalition of breaching truce 231 times

Tehran, Feb 19, 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 231 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.

The information reports indicated reinforcement of forces in this region meaning that they are aimed at escalating attacks on Al-Hudaydah.

He also warned Saudi mercenaries of continuation of violating truce agreement.

Underlining commitment to cease-fire agreement, Saree urged UN special envoy and head of observer group to do their responsibilities to implement the agreement and to avoid violation.

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.
