  • Yemeni President Says He's Ready For A 'New Page' With Saudi-Led Coalition

    On Saturday, former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh said that he was ready for a "new page" in relations with the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen if it stopped attacks on his country. His statement came while his supporters battled Houthi in the capital of Sanaa for the fourth consecutive day. The clashes between Saleh’s supporters and the Houthis underscore the complexities of the situation in Yemen, one of the poorest countries in the Middle East, where a proxy war between the Iran-aligned Houthis and the Saudi-backed Hadi has triggered one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes in recent history.

  • 48-Hour Truce In Yemen Called By Saudi-Led Coalition

    Although residents said fighting was still going on in parts of the country, a truce aimed at ending more than a year of war in Yemen began on Saturday. The 48-hour ceasefire by the Saudi-led military coalition raised hopes of an end to a humanitarian crisis. The crisis was caused by a war that has drawn in regional foes Iran and Saudi Arabia. The truce seemed to be largely holding up despite gun battles in the Western city of Taiz and air strikes by the Saudi-led coalition. The strikes have been reported by residents in villages east of the capital Sanaa. Yemen's Saudi-backed government and its Iran-aligned Houthi adversaries blamed each other for the violence in Taiz. Thousands of civilians there, are trapped and many have been wounded. Threatening to break a year-long siege by the rebels, government forces this week made advances on Taiz.
