Saudi-led Coalition, Houthis Agreed To Renew Ceasefire In Yemen For Two Additional Months

Yemen’s warring parties had agreed to renew an existing ceasefire for another two months, the United Nations (UN) Special Envoy for Yemen Hans Grundberg announced on August 2.

In a statement, Grundberg said that the Saudi-backed Yemeni government and the Houthis (Ansar Allah) had agreed to extend the ceasefire, which first entered into effect on April 2 and was renewed for the first time on June 2.

“I am pleased to announce that the parties have agreed to extend the truce, under the same terms, for an additional two months, from 2 August 2022 until 2 October 2022,” Grundberg said. “This truce extension includes a commitment from the parties to intensify negotiations to reach an expanded truce agreement as soon as possible.”

The ceasefire was the first nationwide halt of fighting in the Yemeni war since 2015, when the Saudi-led coalition intervened to thwart a rebellion by the Houthis and their allies.

Under the UN-sponsored ceasefire agreement, the Houthis suspended their military operations inside Yemen as well as their missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia. From its side, the Saudi-led coalition halted its all of its military operations in Yemen, including aerial attacks, and allowed fuel ships to enter al-Hudaydah port and select flights to land at Sanaa International Airport.

Several violations by the Saudi-led coalition and the Houthis have been reported since the ceasefire entered into effect. Nevertheless, Yemen didn’t experience any major military operations and civilian casualties dropped significantly.

Grundberg was pushing for a six-month ceasefire with additional measures, according to the Reuters news agency. However, both the government and the Houthis had grievances about the implementation of the existing ceasefire agreement.

The enwall of the UN-sponsored ceasefire has been welcomed by many international sides, including the US. The ceasefire will likely continue to be a success. Still, a political settlement between the Yemeni government and the Houthis appears to be out of reach.

The seat of government is Sanaa.

The Saudi idiots despite $1.5 TRILLION in inflated western junk weapons since 1970s have LOST bigtime to natural born Ansarallah soldiers chewing khat, wearing rubber tire sandals and sporting the trusty Russian Kalashnikov. It again shows that any vassal state the US morons arm, train and support is basically not worth a spit. These ceasefires are an indication that the Saudis are a spent loser force and forced to sue for peace.


That temporary ceasefire WILL only last until the arrival of the purchased air defence system from the death enterprising country of USA worth $3billion. with Biden as a broker of course to receive his standard 10% cut from the sales proceeds.

I heard someone was trying to install a puppet gov’t in Yemen and the Houthis didn’t want it, along with most of the people of Yemen.

Maybe american and nato weapon deliveries to Saudi Arabia are about to dry up? like biden’s cognitive skills.
