Developments in Yemen in run-up to Geneva-2 meeting

Developments in Yemen in run-up to Geneva-2 meeting

While Yemeni groups have agreed with holding Geneva-2 meeting on December 15; the resigned Yemeni president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, has reported on the establishment of a seven-day ceasefire from December 15. Meanwhile, the official spokesperson of the Yemeni Armed Forces has put emphasis upon the control of Saudi frontline by Yemeni troops. The Saudi jetfighters continue to pound different regions of Yemen, while Yemeni women and children staged a protest gathering before the UN Office in the city of Sana’a.

 

Meanwhile, the resigned Yemeni president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, on Tuesday, reported on establishment of a seven-day truce in this war-ravaged country, while adding that this ceasefire would be put into effect for a period of one week concurrent with Yemeni peace talks. Meanwhile, in case of commitment of warring parties, this ceasefire will be automatically extended.

The official spokesperson of Yemen’s Armed Forces, Brigadier General Sharaf Loqman, noted on Tuesday that Yemen’s Armed Forces maintain a large-scale presence throughout northern Yemen provinces and southern regions of Saudi Arabia, and are retaking regions of Yemen, which were occupied by Saudi regime, eighty years ago.

He added that in the past few days, the Yemeni forces have carried out successful cleanup operations across the borderlines of Yemen and over 40 Saudi military positions, upon firing more than a thousand missiles and cannon balls, and have destroyed 75 armored vehicles, including American tanks.

This senior Yemeni officer noted that Yemen’s strategy has turned from a defensive position into an offensive position, and the Yemeni forces are confronted with the intelligence arms of the US, which are the operatives of terrorist outfit, dubbed ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL), and Al-Qaeda terrorist group.

Meanwhile, a senior Yemeni cleric, Sheikh Jabri Ibrahim Hassan, has rejected claims over the break out of a tribal war and sectarian strife in Yemen, and has announced that the Yemeni nation remains united against invaders, and the aggressors will not succeed in causing rifts among the Yemeni people.

He underscored that despite the aggressions of the so-called Saudi-led Coalition against his country, Yemeni people will never submit to this invasion.

Meanwhile, Saudi jetfighters pounded northwestern regions of Yemen with prohibited weapons on Tuesday morning.

Furthermore, a number of Yemeni women and children gathered before the UN office in Sana’a, denouncing the massacre of Yemeni women and children throughout the Saudi airstrikes, and the muted reaction of the international community in the face of these illegal air raids.

The participants in this gathering urged the international community to fulfill its duty and to prevent Saudi invasions against people of Yemen.
