Saudi Arabia offered Yemen’s Houthi rebels a “comprehensive” UN-supervised ceasefire

Saw this article online that as part of a series of fresh proposals aimed at ending a catastrophic six-year conflict the Saudi Arabia on Monday offered Yemen’s Houthi rebels a “comprehensive” UN-supervised ceasefire. Saudi government said in a statement that the initiative includes “a comprehensive ceasefire across the country under the supervision of the United Nations. Riyadh also proposed reopening the international airport in Sanaa, the rebel-held capital, and restarting political negotiations between the Yemeni government and the Houthis, the statement added. The UN, which says Yemen is facing the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, warned last month of disastrous consequences for civilians if the fight for Marib continues.
