This agreement comes after an initiative was announced yesterday by the head of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen, Mahdi Al-Mashat, to suspend all military operations towards Saudi Arabia for 3 days.
Al-Mashat's words came as part of the Yemeni National Day of Steadfastness, where thousands of Yemenis took to the streets, participating in massive demonstrations in Sanaa to reject the Saudi-led coalition of aggression against Yemen, which has started its eighth year.
Al-Mashat affirmed, Sanaa's readiness to turn this declaration into a final and firm commitment, if Saudi Arabia commits to end the siege and stop its raids on Yemen, once and for all.
