'A statement from the spokesman of Yemen’s Armed Forces reported that the US-backed Saudi coalition dropped 38 airstrikes just over the course of Saturday. At least 12 of which targeted various areas of Hodeidah which constitutes a direct violation of the peace negotiations calling for a ceasefire.
Airstrikes killed at least 15 civilians since the peace negotiations began last week — including seven women and three children. Meanwhile, 28 sustained injuries, eight of whom were children as well as five women.
Yemen’s Ministry of Health pointed out that this displays the Saudi coalition’s unwillingness to engage in a peace process. “This expresses the unwillingness of these countries to stop the bloodshed and alleviate the suffering of the people of Yemen, which exposes the reality of these countries’ goals in their aggression against Yemen,” a statement from the MoH reads.
Although a previous round of negotiations failed in Geneva in September due to the Saudi coalition’s refusal to grant safe and timely transport to the Ansarullah delegation, an initially successful round of negotiations began in Sweden last week.
Ansarullah leading the Sana’a delegation included a specific list of conditions for sustaining peace which included opening the Sana’a airport to civilian transportation releasing political prisoners and detainees placing the central bank into neutral hands a ceasefire on the front lines — including Hodeidah.
The negotiations showed progress on the issue of political prisoners — including those held in Saudi and Emirati prisons.'
