Saudi Arabia is reportedly moving to enact a partial ceasefire in Yemen, say people familiar with the plans, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Under the terms of the so-called ceasefire, Riyadh has agreed to end its aggression in four areas, including Sana’a.
The chairman of Yemen's Supreme Revolutionary Committee, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, rejected the move as insufficient, according to Al-Masirah TV.
“Yemen will only accept a comprehensive cessation of aggression and lifting of the siege,” he said.
Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
