Houthis committed more than 138 violations since ceasefire agreement: Arab coalition

RIYADH: The Arab coalition fighting to support the legitimate Yemeni government said the Iran-backed Houthi militia has committed more than 138 violations since a cease-fire agreement.
Speaking at a weekly press conference in the Saudi capital Riyadh on Monday, spokesperson Col. Turki Al-Maliki affirmed the Houthi militia launches rockets from Saada and Amran.
He also said that the terrorist group continues to block entry of aid ships to Yemeni ports.
A cease-fire between Yemen’s warring parties went into effect on Dec. 13 in the strategic port city of Hodeidah.
The cease-fire was reached in Stockholm after a round of UN-sponsored talks — the first direct talks in more than two years between representatives of Yemen’s internationally recognized government and the Iranian-backed Houthi militia.
The Dec. 13 agreement stipulated an immediate cease-fire in Hodeidah, a major flashpoint in the country’s war. The besieged rebel-held port city is an entry point for 70% of foreign humanitarian aid into the country, according to the United Nations, which has described Hodeidah as a “lifeline” for Yemen’s war-ravaged population.
Col. Al-Maliki reiterated that the coalition also “welcomed the UN resolution on the Sweden agreement between the legitimate government and the rebels.”
The UN Security Council on Dec. 21 unanimously approved the deployment of an advance team to begin monitoring the cease-fire for an initial period of 30 days.
