A disproportionate number of attacks on civilians in Yemen’s conflict appear to be carried out by the Saudi-led and U.S.-supported coalition, the United Nations human rights chief told the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday. Zeid Raad al-Hussein spoke as U.N.-sponsored peace talks on Yemen are scheduled to reconvene Jan. 14 after collapsing Sunday in Switzerland. Fighting continues despite a cease-fire agreement in place until at least Dec. 28.

On December 23, the Yemeni fighters loyal to the Houthi Ansarullah movement captured Mount Jubah in the al-Mesrakh district of Ta’izz and kill a number of Saudi mercenaries. Separately, several militiamen loyal to the Saudi coalition were killed after Yemeni troops fired a missile at the Dhubab district of Tai’zz.

On December 22, a ballistic missile fired by the Houthi forces hit facilities belonging to Saudi Arabia’s state oil giant Aramco in the Saudi border province of Jizan. Reports said the missile was fired in response to Saudi attacks on different locations across Yemen despite a ceasefire. On December 21, forces loyal to Saudi-backed President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi reportedly moved to the province surrounding Yemen’s capital, Sana’a. It could mark that the Saudi coalition is restoring preparations to capture the city.
