Al-Ezzi: Violations of the truce are increasing
A Yemeni military source confirmed Saturday that the coalition forces continued to violate the truce, and bombed areas in Marib, Al-Ruqi, and Al-Alamah.
The Deputy Foreign Minister in the Sanaa government, Hussein Al-Ezzi, confirmed Friday that the violations of the truce by the Saudi coalition are increasing, the latest of which is a massive encroachment on the positions of Yemeni fighters in Marib.
For its part, the Yemeni Petroleum Company reported that the Saudi-led coalition seized the diesel ambulance ship Daytona and forcibly led them to Jizan, violating the UN armistice.
It is noteworthy that the Saudi coalition claimed that it suspended its operations in Yemen last week, but observers recorded repeated violations of the coalition in Yemeni governorates.
The decision to suspend coalition operations came after the peace initiative presented by the President of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen, Mahdi Al-Mashat, in which he announced “the suspension of missile strikes, drones, and all military actions in the direction of Saudi Arabia."
Al-Bukhaiti: Rallying around Ansar Allah only option to liberate Yemen
For his part, the member of the Political Bureau of the Yemeni Ansar Allah movement, Muhammad Al-Bukhaiti, considered Sunday that all Yemenis should rally around Ansar Allah to liberate every inch of Yemen.
On Twitter, Al-Bukhaiti indicated that the countries of aggression dealt with the southern provinces as a reservoir for mercenaries, under the pretext of restoring the south.
He also considered that it was more honorable for those involved with the coalition to respond to the sincere calls instead of signing a ready-made agreement in Riyadh.
Al-Bukhaiti added that Yemeni political sides - that were involved in inviting the Saudi coalition - were previously called for a Yemeni-Yemeni dialogue in a neutral country such as Oman.
The Yemeni leader pointed out that Ansar Allah was expecting the Yemeni sides - whose leaders in Riyadh were forced to sign a draft agreement under threat - to issue condemnation statements and ask Saudi Arabia to release their leaders, but this did not happen.
A few days ago, Al-Bukhaiti commented on the establishment of a presidential leadership council by former President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, describing Rashad Al-Alimi, the head of the new council, as "America’s asset".
