The Yemeni Houthi rebels said on Monday that they are ready to declare ceasefire with the Saudi-led coalition and peaceful settlement of the crisis, the Houthi Supreme Revolutionary Committee said in a statement, obtained by Sputnik.
The group also said it was ready for a broader ceasefire if "the Saudi-led coalition wants peace," according to Reuters.
Yemen has been in a state of civil war since late 2014, when the Shiite Houthi militia overthrew the government of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi. In March 2015, Saudi Arabia and a coalition of mostly Persian Gulf states began operations to try to restore the Hadi government.
Currently, over 14 million Yemenis face pre-famine conditions, according to UN figures. Late last year, the UK-based Save the Children organization estimated that 50,000+ Yemeni children died from starvation in 2017.
