The Saudi Royal Air Force did not wait very long to attack the Houthis after agreeing to halt all hostilities with them just 24 hours before they struck the Ta’iz Governorate.

According to the Yemeni Army’s spokesperson, Saudi fighter jets struck the cities of Sanaa (Yemeni capital) and Ta’iz this morning, violating the guidelines set forth in the truce between all warring parties.

It is not clear why the Saudi Air Force has decided to violate the truce they put together; however, they have violated every ceasefire in the past.

Saudi Arabia has used these ceasefires in the past to regroup and then conduct another big attack against the Houthi forces (e.g. 2nd battle of Aden).

Current bunch of perverts leading Saudi have proven consistently incapable of honoring the terms of any deal.
