On May 15, 2020 the Yemeni army announced that scores of Houthi militia members were killed in clashes in the Al-Bayda Governorate.
The conflicts were reported after UN Yemen envoy Martin GRIFFITHS told the UN Security Council that the warring parties have made a “significant progress” towards agreeing to a ceasefire.
On May 14, 2020 Martin GRIFFITHS gave to the government of Yemen and the Houthi militia who are in conflict for more than five years draft proposals on nationwide ceasefire economic and humanitarian measures, and the urgent resumption of the political process.
Yemen has been mired in conflict since the Houthi group removed President Abd-Rabbu MANSOUR HADI’s government in 2014. The crisis escalated in 2015 when a Saudi-led military coalition launched a devastating air campaign aimed at rolling back Houthi territorial gains.
Since then, tens of thousands of Yemenis, including civilians, are believed to have been killed in the conflict, while another 14 million are at risk of starvation, according to the UN.
The Houthis have yet to comment on the incidents.
