Shaky ceasefire in Yemen
The Yemeni government and Houthi rebels agreed to immediately halt fighting as peace talks started in Switzerland. A few hours before the announcement of the armistice it was reported that the Saudi coalition and troops of President Hadi occupied the island Zukar in strategically important Bab al-Mandab Strait. Yemen's Houthi army and popular forces at the same time targeted and destroyed two Saudi warships in the waters near Bab al-Mandab Strait on Monday.
Despite the ceasefire Houthi rebels conducte several missile attacks against key military bases and positions in Asir province, Saudi Arabia.
