Saudi Crown Prince proposes ceasefire in Yemen: Report

IFP- A Qatari newspaper has reported that the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia has proposed that Yemen’s Ansarullah stops the war with the Saudi-led coalition in the border areas.

Qatari newspaper Al-Sharq has quoted Yemeni sources as saying that a joint delegation representing Ansarullah movement and former President Ali Abdullah Saleh will soon travel to one of the Arab countries to review the latest developments in Yemen and the crisis in the improvised country.

According to a Farsi report by the Tasnim News Agency, the sources also said that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had sent the UN special envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh to Muscat in order to mediate between the two sides and submit his proposal to Ansarullah and Ali Abdullah Saleh so as to declare a truce in the border areas.

The sources have not mentioned anything about the details of bin Salman’s ceasefire suggestion in these areas.

The army and popular forces of Yemen have been targeting bases and positions of Saudi military forces in Jizan and Najran border regions by their heavy artilleries and missiles in recent weeks killing and wounding a number of Saudi troops.

The Saudi government, in form of a coalition, launched an all-out war against Yemen three years ago, killing over 8,000 people and wounding thousands of others. The attacks have destroyed the country’s infrastructure and displaced millions of people. It has also led to the spread of contagious diseases and famine in this country.

While Riyadh has failed to achieve its goals of launching war against Yemen, it still continues committing crimes against the Yemeni citizens.
