Saudi-led coalition violates ceasefire in Yemen 199 times

TEHRAN, Sep. 04 (MNA) – News sources on Sunday morning reported that Saudi-led coalition has violated the ceasefire in Yemen 199 times in the past 24 hours.

The Saudi-led coalition violated the UN-brokered ceasefire in Yemen by carrying out surveillance and reconnaissance flights over the provinces of Ma’rib, Ta’iz, Al Jawf, Sa’ada, Al Hudaydah, Dhale, Al-Bayda, Al Hajjah, and also other borders, Almasirah reported.

The report adds that the armed reconnaissance planes of the Saudi-led coalition targeted residential houses and positions of army forces and popular committees in Al-Heys and Al-Tahyta cities located in Hudaydah province.

This is while the UN special representative for Yemen Affairs Hans Grundberg announced about a month ago the agreement of the Yemeni parties for the extension of ceasefire for the two months.

He pointed out that the extension of the Yemeni ceasefire includes the commitment of the parties to negotiate in order to reach a broader agreement.

The ceasefire in Yemen, which has been repeatedly violated by the Saudi aggressor coalition, was extended more than once following UN consultations. The two-month extension of this ceasefire ended in August which was extended again.

Saudi Arabia, in the form of a coalition of several Arab countries, including the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and with the help and green light of the United States and the support of the Zionist regime, launched large-scale attacks against Yemen on March 26, 2015.
