The UN Security Council's President, Equatorial Guinean permanent representative, on Friday called upon Yemeni warring parties to respect Stockholm Agreement.

At press conference, Ndong Mpa expressed concerns on current humanitarian situation in Yemen, and stressed the need for applying the pact reached last December in Sweden and going ahead with political process.

Yemeni, Saudi and Emirati UN ambassadors have sent a joint letter to the UNSC president for January.

In letter, they listed thousands of Houthi violations against Hodeida ceasefire, including the breaches' type, nature, place and date of occurrence from the 13th of last December up till 30th of this January.

In the meanwhile, Sana'a-based Houthi-run Saba news agency on Saturday quoted a security source as saying that a civilian had been killed in mortar shells by government and coalition forces and others had been injured in coalition airstrikes on Hodeida.

The security official accused coalition forces of persistently violating ceasefire and targeting civilians in Hodeida, Sa'ada and Taiz.

Yemen has been racked by an armed conflict that broke out after the Iranian-backed Houthis had ousted the internationally recognized government late in 2014.

The conflict escalated after a Saudi-led coalition intervened militarily in the country in March 2015 to reinstate the government of President Hadi.

The Yemeni warring parties, legitimate government and Houthi rebels, have traded blames for hindering Stockholm Agreement.
