Yemen's Vice President Khaled Bahah, a politician respected across the country's spectrum of factions, called on Houthi forces to stop advances on cities and heed a UN Security Council demand for an end to fighting, local media reported.

Baha's comments, made during a visit to the Yemeni embassy in Saudi Arabia on Monday, coincided with air strikes by a Saudi-led alliance on Iran-allied Houthi fighters, intensified fighting and reports the humanitarian situation was worsening.

"The brothers in Ansarullah are called on to fear God with the Yemeni people and stop their war on the cities," Yemeni news website reported, referring to the Shi'ite Muslim Houthi group by its official name.

"Everybody must realize that the UN Security Council resolution 2216 created a framework to end the conflict and that any initiative or dialog would be for a mechanism to implement this resolution," he added.
