Yemen has been racked by a 4.5-year bloody conflict between the Yemeni internationally-recognized government's forces, backed by a Saudi-led coalition, and the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels who ousted the government in 2014.

On September 20, the Houthis announced they would halt all their strikes on Saudi Arabia, if Saudi attacks on Yemen are stopped.

In the first Saudi response to Houthi announcement, the Saudi Minister for Foreign Affairs said on Saturday his country would watch how serious the Houthis are in fulfilling their peace initiative.

This comes after attacks on the Saudi Aramco oil facilities reduced the KSA's production to half, with the Houthi group in Yemen claiming responsibility.

Saudi Arabia and the United States accused Iran of the attack, but Tehran denied.
