On 11 April, the leader of the Ansarallah resistance movement, Sayyed Abdul Malik al-Houthi, said during a televised address that Saudi Arabia has been failing in its war against Yemen, and that it is looking for a way out of the conflict after multiple retaliatory attacks by Ansarallah on Saudi soil.

“The enemies seek to weaken and force the nation to surrender through sanctions, restrictive measures, and arrogance. They seek to sap the morale of Yemenis and create a sense of despair and defeat among the people,” Al-Houthi said.

Al-Houthi also said that Yemen had put up strong resistance against the Saudi-led coalition and their allies since the coalition started the war in March 2015. According to Al-Houthi, the aggressors will eventually be left with no option but to accept defeat.

Yemen set the condition for the ceasefire to become permanent only when Saudi Arabia and its coalition end the bombardment of Yemen and lift the economic blockade on the country. Yemen also demands the departure of all foreign forces from within its borders, and the end of all funding for mercenary militant groups.

The terms of the two-month truce include the end of all offensive military operations and cross-border operations, while allowing ships with necessary supplies into the port city of Hodeidah, and the re-opening of Sanaa airport for commercial flights.

Despite the ceasefire, the Saudi-led coalition has committed 1,647 violations of the ceasefire agreement with Yemeni resistance forces since the truce.

Recently, on 10 April, two Yemeni civilians were killed as a result of Saudi artillery shelling at a residential area in the northwestern province in Yemen. Three other Yemeni nationals were injured in the attack.

On 6 April, the spokesperson for the Yemen Petroleum Company (YPC) announced that, despite the ceasefire, Saudi coalition forces had seized the Daytona oil ship that was headed for Yemen, diverting it to the Saudi port of Jizan.

YPC spokesman Issam Yahya al-Mutawakel told reporters that three other ships were also under seizure by the Saudi-led coalition.
