Saudi-led mercenaries have attacked Bayt al-Faqih District in Al Hudaydah Governorate, western Yemen.

Iran PressMiddle East: Yemen's al-Masirah TV reported on Sunday night that Saudi aggressors have fired machine guns and artillery in the area of ​​al-Jahah in Bayt al-Faqih District in Al Hudaydah Governorate, western Yemen.

An agreed ceasefire in Sweden between Sana'a and Riyadh delegations began on Tuesday, December 18, 2018, in Yemen's western province of al-Hudaydah, but the Saudi coalition violates it every day.

Backed by the United States, the Saudi regime and some of its Arab allies invaded Yemen in 2015 and have enforced a strict blockade of the country by ground, air, and sea ever since.

The Saudi war has affected over seven million children in Yemen who now face a serious threat of famine, according to UNICEF figures.

Over 6,000 children have either been killed or sustained serious injuries since 2015, the UN children’s agency said. The humanitarian situation in the country has also been exacerbated by outbreaks of cholera, polio, and measles.

The US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), a nonprofit conflict-research organization, estimates that the war in Yemen has claimed more than 91,000 lives over the past four and a half years.
