Combat Operations in Yemen are coming to an end :Saudi-led military
Saudi-led military statement to end combat in yaman

 

 A spokesman for the Saudi-led military coalition says that major combat operations in Yemen are coming to an end, after which the coalition will work on "long-term" plans to bring stability to the country.

Brigadier General Ahmed al-Asiri told The Associated Press on Thursday that the coalition will continue to provide air support to Yemeni forces battling Houthi rebels and militants on the ground.

The year long air campaign and ground assault was intended to roll back the Houthis, who seized the capital, Sanaa, in 2014 and still control it.

Al-Asiri says the coalition is investigating reports of mass killings in northern Yemen after two Saudi-led airstrikes hit a market on Tuesday.

The Houthi-controlled state news agency, SABA, said at least 65 people were killed and 55 wounded.
