Houthis Agree To 5-Day Cease-Fire For Humanitarian Aid

The  Houthi rebels have agreed to a five-day cease-fire proposed by Saudi Arabia to allow humanitarian aid into the country. The cease-fire would begin at 11 p.m. Tuesday.

The Houthi rebels issued a statement early on Sunday agreeing to “cooperate with the ceasefire to help people suffering from the severe fuel and food shortages.

The agreement to put the bombing campaign on hiatus follows a warning by the United Nations representative in Yemen that the Saudi-led airstrikes had “effectively trapped civilians,” according to the reporter.
