A Saudi-led coalition waging a brutal aggression on Yemen announced the end Saturday of a ceasefire that had been violated on a daily basis since it was declared last month.

The “coalition leadership announces the end of the truce in Yemen starting from 1400” (1100GMT) on Saturday, the alliance said in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency.

The ceasefire announced on December 15 had been ended due to continuous “attacks on the kingdom’s territories by firing ballistic missiles towards Saudi cities, targeting Saudi border posts, and hampering aid operations,” it said, referring to missile attacks by the Yemeni army and popular committees.

The army and the committees attacks are in retaliation for the continuous Saudi-led airstrikes on several areas across Yemen.

However, the coalition “was and is still eager on creating the suitable circumstances to find a peaceful solution in Yemen,” it said.

Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.

Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.

However, Yemeni army, backed by the committees has been engaged in battles with Saudi-led mercenaries and Hadi’s militias in several areas across the country.
