Yemeni Military Media revealed that the US-Saudi aggression committed 1,647 violations of the UN-brokered two-month truce within a week of its entry into effect.

Hawzah News Agency – According to the Military Media, the violations included offensive operations, air raids, overflights by coalition warplanes, Apache and spy aircraft, missile and artillery targets, and extensive combing with various bullets.

Violations of the aggression’s forces resulted in the death of a number of citizens and the wounding of others, in addition to damaging the properties and farms of citizens.

The aggression’s warplanes launched more than 41 air strikes targeting citizens’ homes and Army and Popular Committee sites in Hodeidah, Marib, Taiz, Al-Dhalea and Lahj.

The Saudi warplanes also carried out intensive overflights in Marib, Al-Jawf, Amran, Hajjah, Al-Dhalea and beyond the borders.

The coalition's Apache helicopters participated in the violations, and carried out sorties, raids and extensive combing of army and committee positions on the border fronts.

The forces of the US-Saudi aggression launched two offensive operations on the positions of the Army and Committees in Al-Wadi district in Marib. They recorded 201 violations with Katyusha rockets, guided missiles and artillery shells on the homes of citizens and the positions of the Army and Committees in Hodeidah, Marib, Hajjah, Sa’adah, Al-Jawf, Taiz, Al-Baidha, Al-Dhalea, Lahj and in fronts beyond the border.

The coalition forces carried out more than 901 violations with heavy, medium and light bullets, with hundreds of targets, targeting the homes of citizens and the sites of the Army and Popular Committees in Hodeidah, Marib, Al-Jawf, Sa’adah, Hajjah, Taiz, Lahj, Al-Baidha, Al-Dhalea and in the fronts beyond the border.

The Deputy Foreign Minister Hussein Al-Azi, confirmed on Friday that the violations of the truce by the Saudi coalition are increasing, the latest being a large-scale offensive on the positions of Yemeni forces in the energy-rich province of Marib.

“No flights [into and out of Sana’a International Airport] are allowed yet. Despite having undergone inspection and received UN clearance, ships are detained and taken away to Jizan port [in southern Saudi Arabia],” he asserted, pointing to the blatant breaches.

Last week, the UN special envoy for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, announced the nationwide ceasefire, for the first time since 2016, saying the two-month truce would be eligible for renewal with the consent of parties.

The truce, meant to halt all military operations in the country and bring the foreign military invasion to an end, came into effect at 07:00 p.m. local time (1600 GMT) on April 2.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the truce "must be a first step to ending Yemen’s devastating war," urging the warring parties to build on the opportunity to "resume an inclusive and comprehensive Yemeni political process."

The deal stipulates halting offensive military operations, including cross-border attacks, and allowing fuel-laden ships to enter Yemen’s lifeline al-Hudaydah port and commercial flights in and out of the airport in the capital Sana’a "to predetermined destinations in the region."
