Mahdi Al-Mashat

Yemeni President, Mahdi Al-Mashat, said on Saturday that Yemen was suspending missile and drone strikes on Saudi Arabia for three days, in a peace initiative could be a lasting commitment if the US-Saudi aggression fighting in Yemen stopped air strikes and lifted port restrictions.

Hawzah News Agency – In a speech of the occasion of the National Day of Resilience, Al-Mashat also announced a three-day suspension of ground offensive operations in Yemen, including in the gas producing region of Marib.

Air strikes of the Saudi-led coalition pounded the Houthi-controlled sea ports of Hodeidah and Salif on Saturday, a day after the Yemeni Armed Forces launched broad attacks on Saudi Arabia, including Aramco Jeddah, causing a massive fire and a huge plume of black smoke.

Lifting restrictions imposed by the coalition's warships on the Red Sea Yemeni ports has been a major condition for a ceasefire.

Al-Mashat said that the initiative would last if the coalition reopened the ports and stopped its air strikes. In exchange for extending the suspension of ground offensive operations, he said Saudi Arabia must announce a withdrawal of foreign troops from Yemen and stop supporting local militias.

He added that Yemen is ready to release all prisoners, including the brother of Abdrabbu Hadi, the pro US-Saudi aggression government's president.
The President called the UN envoy for arranging procedures and facilitating the exchange of statements and executive agreements in full or in installments.

At least 8 citizens were killed and 4 others were injured, including women and children, by US-Saudi airstrikes that targeted the capital, Sana’a, Saturday.
“Two US-Saudi airstrikes targeted two houses in which guards of the General Authority for Insurance lived with their families in Haddah area of Al-Sabeen district, which led to the death of at least 8 members of those families and the injury of 4 others, in an indefinite toll,” Almasirah Net correspondent stated.
The US-Saudi aggression also launched two raids on Al-Hafa area in Sana'a.
This comes in the context of the almost daily crimes and massacres committed by the US-Saudi aggression against civilians for the past seven years, against civilians in the capital, Sana’a, and the rest of the Yemeni governorates, amid international silence.
Saudi Arabia, backed by the United States and regional allies, launched the war on Yemen in March 2015, claiming the goal of bringing the government of former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi back to power.
The US-Saudi aggression continues to target neighborhoods and populated areas and destroy the infrastructure and capabilities of the country, in light of a suspicious international silence.
The war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead and displaced millions more. It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases there.
