The head of Yemen’s Supreme Revolutionary Committee said that the commitments of the Saudi aggressors to Yemen for holding a ceasefire must be written and be approved by the UN.

Iran Press/Middle East: In response to the demand of the UN Special envoy for the Yemen Martin Griffiths to accept a ceasefire, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi stressed the establishment of peace.

Three days after the announcement of the so-called ceasefire in Yemen, Griffiths proposed a new peace offer to Ansarullah and the resigned government of the Saudi-backed Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.

The new proposal includes three clauses, including a series of economic and humanitarian decisions to alleviate the suffering of Yemenis, the support for Yemen to deal with the crisis of the coronavirus outbreak, as well as the immediate resumption of the political process, Martin Griffiths said.

Griffiths' new proposal comes three days after the Saudi coalition announced a two-week ceasefire at the pretext of fighting against the spread of the novel coronavirus, but the ceasefire has been repeatedly shattered by the coalition.

Yemen’s Armed Forces Spokesman Brigadier-General Yahya Saree said on Saturday that the dangerous escalation will have repercussions on US-Saudi aggression, adding the aggression has launched 25 raids in the last 12 hours to support their mercenaries' military creeps and violating a promised ceasefire.

The Yemenis consider the Saudi coalition's announcement of a ceasefire as a tactic by the Saudi regime to buy time to rebuild its forces.

Yemen's call for a ceasefire amid COVID-19 outbreak

Earlier, the head of Yemen’s Supreme Revolutionary Committee Mohammed Ali al-Houthi called on the UN and its Security Council to act for stopping the Saudi coalition’s war on Yemen so that it could counter the coronavirus outbreak.

Hours after his request, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said in a message: "Today I am calling for an immediate global ceasefire in all corners of the world."

"It is time to put the armed conflict on lockdown and focus together on the true fight of our lives – the COVID-19 pandemic," he stressed.

Yemen has reported its first coronavirus case in a southern province, raising fears of catastrophic consequences in a healthcare system affected negatively by five years of Saudi-led coalition war.

The country has been suffering the world's worst humanitarian crisis and millions are reliant on food aid. While diseases including cholera, dengue and malaria are rife and only half of the hospitals are fully functional, the coronavirus is another kind of challenge.
