In Yemen, at least eight people were reported killed following overnight airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition this weekend. The attacks came just hours after Houthi rebels announced a three-day truce and said they would agree to peace talks if Saudi Arabia stopped its strikes and blockade of Yemen and removed foreign forces from the country. On Friday, a Houthi attack on an oil storage facility in Saudi Arabia triggered a massive fire in the port city of Jeddah. This comes as the U.S.-backed war on Yemen is entering its eighth year, with residents facing a worsening humanitarian crisis. Millions have been uprooted and are on the brink of famine. This is a displaced man speaking from the Darwan camp near Sana’a.
Abdullah Hamzeh: “To begin with, we have no livelihood. We are lost. People are lost. It’s as if we are buried underground, like a tree that cannot bloom. My children and I are destitute. We have no income, nothing. We pray to God that this war will stop across all of Yemen.”
