 The terrorist Houthi militia, Iran's arm in Yemen, insisted on its impossible demands to extend the humanitarian truce sponsored by the United Nations, and it is expected to expire on Tuesday.

Houthi media reported that the head of the so-called Political Council of the militias, Mahdi al-Mashat, during his meeting in Sanaa with the delegation of the Sultanate of Oman, insisted on his group’s demands represented by the total and immediate opening of Sana’a International Airport and the port of Hodeidah, and the payment of employee salaries under his authority, claiming that “these demands do not  It involves any incapacitation or calls for a concession from the other party, and the implementation of these steps will create an atmosphere supportive of peace and will contribute significantly to alleviating the suffering of citizens as a result of the aggression and siege," he said.

The Chairman of the Presidential Leadership Council, Dr. Rashad Al-Alimi, in contact with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, had stipulated that the Houthi militia supply all proceeds from the ports of Hodeidah to the Central Bank of Yemen in Aden in order to pay all salaries of public servants throughout the country.

The terrorist Houthi militia has so far refused to implement its obligations within the framework of the armistice, which is to open the main roads and lift the siege on the city of Taiz, while the legitimate government has implemented its obligations represented in partially opening Sana'a International Airport to international flights and allowing the entry of oil derivatives to the port of Hodeidah.

Despite the gains achieved by the militias, the militias claim that they have not achieved anything from the truce, while the weekly summary issued by the World Food Program office in Yemen indicated that since the truce entered into force on the second of April, 28 fuel ships loaded with 659,000 tons of fuel have arrived to Hodeidah port at the end of June, i.e. more than 535,000 tons entered during the whole of 2021.
