Fragile cease-fire appears to be holding in Yemen
SANAA, Yemen — Saudi Arabia and Yemen's Houthi rebels traded accusations of ceasefire violations Wednesday, but a negotiated pause in their hostilities appeared to be mostly holding.
Aid agencies hope to use the five-day truce, which began late Tuesday, to send in food, fuel and other supplies for civilians.
Yemen residents said warplanes from a Saudi-led coalition had bombed targets in Aden, Abyan, Shabwa and Marib on Wednesday.
The Saudi Defense Ministry in turn accused Houthi fighters of firing projectiles over the border into the southern Saudi regions.
