DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:00 P.M.) – The short-lived 48 hour long ceasefire in Yemen concluded this morning, as both sides trade attacks across the country.

The two day long ceasefire that was proposed by U.S. Secretery of State, John Kerry, did very little end the violence plaguing Yemen.

Hundreds of airstrikes were launched by the Saudi-led Coalition forces across the country this past weekend, killing and wounding several civilians inside Yemen’s most densely populated cities.

In response to the Saudi airstrikes, the Houthi forces fired several anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM) at the Coalition vehicles traveling near the Saudi-Yemeni border.

Clashes have now been reported at several cities across the country, with some of the most intense battles taking place near the Yemeni capital of Sanaa.

The Saudi-backed Hadi loyalists claim they repelled a major Houthi assault on the Sirwah District of Mar’ib this morning, despite the fact firefights are still being reported from the area.
