Saudi ambassador to Yemen says Hodeidah agreement to start Friday: Al Arabiya TV

CAIRO (Reuters) - Saudi ambassador to Yemen Mohammed al-Jabir told Al Arabiya TV on Thursday that enforcement procedures of the Hodeidah agreement made earlier between Yemen’s warring parties will start tomorrow.

Yemen’s warring parties agreed earlier on Thursday to cease fighting for the Houthi-held port city of Hodeidah and withdraw their troops, the first significant breakthrough for U.N.-led peace efforts in five years of conflict.
