Exchange of accusations regarding the violation of the armistice in Yemen

The Yemeni internationally recognized government forces and the Houthi group (Ansar Allah), have exchanged accusations of violating the ceasefire.

The spokesman for the government forces, Abdo Mejalli, said in a statement to the website "September Net" of the Ministry of Defense, that the Houthis committed more than 74 violations and attacks on the positions of the National Army on various fronts during the past 24 hours.

He added that "the violations varied between the attack and the reinforcements, targeting the army sites with rockets and artillery, launching drones and planting mines."

For its part, the Houthi group, the Saudi-led coalition and government forces, were accused of 99 violations of Al-Hodeidah governorate during the past 24 hours.

It reported that the air defenses in its forces shot down a coalition spy plane in the airspace of the Razeh district of Saada governorate while they were conducting hostilities, according to the Yemeni news agency "Saba" in its version in Sanaa, which was managed by the Houthis.

Earlier, the military spokesman for the Houthi group, Yahya Saree, said that the group's forces broke three infiltrations in the Qaniya front, al-Joribat, Nate' in al-Bayda governorate, and two infiltrations in the Serwah district of Marib governorate, and crawled in the al-Dhabab area in Taiz.

He stated that coalition fwarplanes launched seven airraids on separate areas in the Khub Washa'af district of Al-Jawf governorate.

On Saturday morning, the Houthi-run (Saba) news agency reported that coalition aircraft launched six air raids on the Haradh district in Hajjah governorate, and two airraids on the Khub Washa'af district in Al-Jawf governorate.

It accused the Saudi army of launching heavy weapons shelling on separate areas in the district of Razeh, located on the border strip, west of Saada.

The Saudi-led Arab coalition had declared a unilateral ceasefire for a period of two weeks, "subject to extension", beginning Thursday morning.

In a televised statement after the coalition announced the armistice, the Houthi spokesman, Mohammed Abdulsalam, considered it a "political and media maneuver aimed at sabotaging the vision presented by the Houthis to the United Nations regarding the solution."
