Tehran proposed a ceasefire, ending the blockade on Yemen, providing humanitarian aid to the people, and establishing an inclusive national unity government.

The spokesman of Yemen's Ansarullah movement also said that Yemen is in a challenging situation involving an attrition war.

Mohammed Abdul-Salam added: At first, the enemy thought the war in Yemen would be easy, but it became difficult for them to fight against the aggression.

"8 years after war started in Yemen, the enemy has admitted that it has been defeated and has reached a deadlock, which is why they are thinking about the economic blockade of Yemen," Abdul-Salamalso noted.
