Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi militia said on Saturday it was suspending missile and drone strikes on Saudi Arabia for three days, in a peace initiative it said could be a lasting commitment if the Arab Coalition stopped airstrikes and lifted port restrictions.

The group also announced a three-day suspension of ground offensive operations in Yemen, including in the gas producing region of Marib, said Mahdi al-Mashat, the head of the Houthis’ political office, in a speech broadcast on television.

Mashat said the group was ready to release all prisoners, including the brother of Yemen’s President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi.

The announcement came after the Arab Coalition launched airstrikes against Houthi strongholds in Yemen’s port city of Hodeidah and destroyed a weapons warehouse in the vicinity of the Salif Port in Yemen after the Houthis transported weapons to it.

The coalition earlier gave the Houthis a three-hour deadline to remove all weapons from the ports of Hodeidah and Salif and the Sanaa international airport.

On Friday, the Houthis launched 16 “hostile attacks” against the Kingdom, including an attack on an Aramco oil facility in Jeddah.

None of the attacks resulted in fatalities, according to the coalition.
