Saudi-owned TV: Saudi-led coalition says Yemen govt did not request truce

July 11, 2015 14:38

The Saudi-led coalition that has bombed Yemen's dominant Houthi group for more than three months said on Saturday it had not received a request from the Yemeni government in exile to pause its campaign during a truce, Saudi-owned Arabiya TV said.

The report came after Saudi-led air strikes and heavy shelling between warring factions shook several cities in Yemen overnight, residents said, violating a United Nations humanitarian truce which took effect just before midnight.

"The leadership of the coalition: we did not receive a request from the Yemeni government regarding the truce," a news flash on the channel said on Saturday.
