Reuters: Yemen warring parties say port city ceasefire starts on Tuesday16 December 2018 | 16:05 | FOCUS News Agency
The Iranian-aligned Houthi group and the Saudi-backed government of Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi agreed on Thursday after a week of U.N.-sponsored peace talks in Sweden to cease fighting in the Red Sea city and withdraw forces.
The Houthis control most towns and cities, including Hodeidah and the capital Sanaa, from where they ousted Hadi’s government in 2014 prompting a Saudi-led coalition to intervene. The government is now based in the southern port of Aden.
