Saudi Arabia accused of violating truce in Yemen

Capital bombed just hours after truce took effect, says de facto government

YEMEN’S de facto government accused Saudi Arabia of violating a United Nations-brokered ceasefire just hours after it came into force yesterday.

A Yemeni army spokesman said warplanes from the invading Saudi-led coalition bombed the capital Sanaa and the central province of Taiz yesterday morning, violating the truce. …

UN special envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed urged all parties to work to ensure that the cessation of hostilities is “fully respected.”

“This is critical, urgent and much-needed. Yemen cannot afford the loss of more lives,” he said. …

More than a year of bombing, escalating to a ground invasion, by the coalition has failed to restore Mr Hadi to power.

But it has killed more than 9,000 people — including more than 3,000 civilians, 900 children among them — and displaced some 2.4 million refugees, according to the UN.

Yemen, which imports 90 per cent of its food, has been brought to the brink of famine by a Saudi embargo, with seven million people now classed as “severely food insecure” by the World Food Programme.
