Yemen.. Confirmation of commitment to the armistice amid a government warning of its collapse
The UN envoy to Yemen, Hans Grundberg, announced today, Thursday, the continuation of efforts with the Yemeni parties to establish the truce and to develop solutions to the outstanding problems, noting in a brief statement that the parties "confirmed their commitment to maintaining the truce."
"We are working tirelessly to help them find solutions to resume flights from Sanaa, and we continue to push for progress on opening roads in Taiz and other governorates," he said.
"I have called on the parties to work constructively and in good faith to prioritize the interests of Yemeni civilians," the UN envoy added.
This comes at a time when the Yemeni government accuses the Houthi militia of obstructing the resumption of flights from Sanaa airport and the opening of roads in Taiz and other governorates.
The Yemeni government warned against the militias undermining the chances of peace, following the continued endangerment of the lives of citizens and the failure to abide by the humanitarian truce.
In a statement, the Yemeni Ministry of Legal Affairs and Human Rights condemned in the strongest terms the militias' continued targeting of civilians and violating the UN truce, the latest of which was the killing of civilians by sniping while they were herding sheep on their farms.
The statement called on the UN envoy to Yemen, and all local and international human rights organizations and organizations to assume their responsibilities towards civilians, by shedding light on these crimes and showing them to local and international public opinion, and working to hold the killers and those involved in the Houthi militia leaders accountable.
For his part, Yemen's permanent representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Abdullah Al-Saadi, during his meeting in New York with the permanent representatives of China and the United Kingdom and the acting permanent representative of France to the United Nations, renewed the Yemeni government's commitment to the truce, especially allowing the entry of oil derivatives ships through the port of Hodeidah and the opening of an airport Sana'a for commercial flights at a rate of two flights per week.
He pointed out, according to the official Saba Agency, that these efforts were met with the Houthi militia's continuous and flagrant violations of the armistice, and their continued attacks on Marib and other Yemeni cities with ballistic missiles and drones, which requires the international community and the Security Council to exert more pressure on the militias to stop their aggression and abide by the truce, which It forms the basis for achieving a comprehensive cease-fire.
The Saudi King, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, affirmed, during his meeting in Jeddah, the Chairman of the Yemeni Presidential Leadership Council Rashad Al-Alimi and members of the council, his keenness to support the security and stability of Yemen and the integrity of its territory.
In addition, the joint forces on the western coast announced the opening of the "Hais-Al-Jarrahi" line, south of Hodeidah, in compliance with the unilateral UN armistice, amid the intransigence of the Houthi militia.
She explained that "the line was opened unilaterally, while the Houthi militias are still cutting the line from their areas of control, and are trying to circumvent the agreement by proposing secondary roads linking Hays with Al-Jarrahi from the east and northeast to the "Al-Masbariya" area located on the Ibb-Hodeidah line.
And local sources reported that the secondary roads proposed by the Houthi militia are long and contaminated with mines planted by the militias during the last period, which will increase the suffering of civilians.
On the other hand, the Yemeni forces announced that the Houthi militia had committed 74 violations of the UN armistice, on various fronts.
It explained that the violations were distributed as 31 violations on the fronts of the Taiz axis, 16 violations in the Al-Barah axes west of Taiz and Hais south of Hodeidah, 13 violations on the fronts west of Hajjah, 11 violations in the south, west and northwest of Ma'rib, and 3 violations on the fighting fronts east of Al-Hazm city in Al-Jawf Governorate.
