Aden, NewsYemen:

 The terrorist Houthi militia has set new conditions for the continuation of the fragile truce sponsored by the United Nations, in Yemen, while threatening to continue hostilities.

The new requirements came from Hussein Al-Ezzi, appointed to the position of Deputy Foreign Minister for the unrecognized Houthi government, and they come at a time when the group has not implemented any of its obligations under the armistice agreement, despite the passage of 3 months.

The Houthi leader stated, on his Twitter account, that his group will not accept an additional extension of the armistice, unless the Yemeni government (the legitimate government) pays "the salaries of all employees without exception, and the supply of oil and gas revenues."

He said: "If you do not achieve honest, broad, reliable and tangible agreements that include all humanitarian and economic aspects, including oil and gas revenues and salaries, then I think that there will be no room for any false extensions."

Al-Ezzi threatened to resume the battles "at once and without any pause."  As he put it.

From an early time, the Houthi militia has violated and fragmented the humanitarian truce, and refused to implement its obligations, under the UN-backed agreement, to alleviate the suffering of Yemenis, while using the truce to practice political blackmail and impose conditions that it was unable to achieve through the war.
