Yemen’s Ansarullah movement rejected a Saudi partial ceasefire as “not good enough” and called for a comprehensive cessation of aggression against the Arab country.

Ansarullah released a statement outlining its stance on claims that Saudi Arabia accepted a partial cessation of airstrikes on four regions. Right after the chairman of Yemen's Supreme Revolutionary Committee, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, rejected the move as insufficient; an Ansarullah official told Press TV that Yemen will only accept a comprehensive termination of aggression.

Last week, Yemen’s Ansarullah movement announced it will stop launching retaliatory missile and drone attacks against positions inside Saudi Arabia if the Saudi-led military coalition, which has been pounding Yemen for the past several years, reciprocates the initiative in kind. However he warned of more attacks if the peace initiative is not respected.

Ansarullah carried out drone and missile strikes on two of Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities, in Abqaiq and Khurais on September 14. The attacks led to a halt in about 50 percent of the Arab kingdom’s crude and gas production, causing a surge in oil prices.

Yemenis have warned that dozens of targets in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, namely in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, are within their missiles range. They urged the aggressors to stay away from Yemen if security and safety of their infrastructure and glass towers matter to them.
