Saudi proposes five-day Yemen ceasefire

Wreckage of a Yemeni air force aircraft on May 5, 2015 after an airstrike on rebel-controlled Sanaa airport by the Saudi-led coalitionSaudi Arabia Thursday proposed a five-day humanitarian ceasefire in Yemen following weeks of air strikes and clashes, with top US diplomat John Kerry urging Iran-backed rebels to accept the offer. The bombing by a Saudi-led coalition has failed to halt an advance by the Shiite Huthi rebels in Yemen, and concern has been mounting over increasing civilian deaths. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir announced the ceasefire proposal after talks in Riyadh with Kerry, who described it as a “major opportunity” to ease the humanitarian crisis. Jubeir said he had informed Kerry of “the kingdom’s idea of a five-day ceasefire in Yemen to coordinate with international organisations to deliver aid to Yemen if the Huthis and their allies commit to this and do not carry out acts of aggression in Yemen”.
