The ceasefire in effect in Yemen since the end of April has come to an end. That reports the AP news agency . The United Nations failed to extend the ceasefire. On Saturday, UN Special Envoy Hans Grundberg presented another proposal for an extension of the treaty to the Yemeni government . He then said that he would “treat them positively”. At the same time, the government also said its opponents, the Houthis, had failed to fulfill their obligations under the peace treaty. The Houthis said in a statement on Sunday that they would not accept the new ceasefire because the proposals “do not initiate a peace process”. The Iranian-backed rebels also said the government has failed to fulfill its promise to ease the suffering of the Yemeni people. “Over the past six months, we have seen no serious willingness to address humanitarian issues as a top priority.” The ceasefire was the longest in Yemen’s civil war, which began in 2014 when the Iranian-backed Houthis took the capital Sanaa and much of northern Yemen and forced the government into exile. The conflict has already claimed more than 150,000 lives and the Asian country is facing one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Correction (October 3, 2022): An earlier version of this message stated that the Houthis would not seek peace. This is not correct, they believe that the proposals for an extension of the ceasefire do not initiate a peace process. This has been corrected above.
