Yemen announces a unilateral ceasefire, suspends all rocket and drone attacks against Saudi Arabia, and affirms its readiness to turn the declaration into a permanent commitment.
Mashat said Saudi Arabia must end its blockade on the Republic of Yemen once and for all. He said Yemen is also ready to perform a full prisoner exchange. He called on the UN Special Envoy for Yemen to take steps to prepare the agreements to carry out the exchanges. Meanwhile, the head of Yemen’s negotiating team says Riyadh must prove its seriousness in response to the Yemeni peace plan by responding to the ceasefire, lifting the siege, and withdrawing troops. The developments follow the Yemeni army targeting multiple locations deep inside Saudi Arabia, including an Aramco oil facility in Jeddah and vital sites in the capital, Riyadh.
