A shaky 48-hour truce has seen at least 185 violations committed by Houthi militias, mostly in the beseiged city of Taiz. The truce which began mid-day on Saturday aimed at getting humanitarian assistance to several areas at the request of Yemen’s President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi. Saturday’s truce, the third announced this year, could be extended if the Iran-aligned Houthi movement shows commitment to abide by it and if the group allows humanitarian aid into areas under siege. Six attempts to clinch a ceasefire in Yemen have foundered, including a three-day October truce that fell apart as soon as it went into force.
