American Center for Justice (ACJ) regrets that the international community failed to extend the truce in Yemen and calls upon it to work to end to the war

The American Center for Justice (ACJ) regrets the international community’s failure to extend the humanitarian truce in Yemen, its lax handling of the terms of the parties to the conflict, and the ambiguity surrounding its discussions on the extension in the last days of the expired truce.

The center believes that the international community did not make sufficient efforts to extend the truce, nor did it disclose the details of the discussions that took place between the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General of the United Nations for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, and the leaders of the Houthi group in Sana’a or what obstacles and conditions complicated his mission, which did not allow an agreement to be reached.

Through its permanent follow-up, (ACJ) finds that the international community, through the UN envoy, was not firm or decisive in applying pressures to convince the Houthi group to continue the truce as it failed before and during the past six months to obligate it to implement the provisions of the humanitarian situation.

Throughout the period of the ended truce, which was announced for humanitarian purposes and to alleviate the suffering of Yemeni civilians, the Houthi group evade compliance with the most important conditions for the humanitarian situation, namely, opening roads to alleviate the suffering of civilians, especially in Taiz governorate, and paying state employees’ salaries from the revenues of Hodeidah ports.

The American Center for Justice (ACJ) calls on the international community to assume its responsibilities to protect civilians from the effects of the end of the truce, the Houthi group’s refusal to extend it, and what may result from such as the return of clashes, most of which occur in residential areas, or vital areas.

(ACJ) stresses the need for the international community, its bodies and states, to play a serious, effective and resolute role to restore the truce on the one hand and to continue activities and efforts to end the war in Yemen in a just manner on the other hand, on the other hand, leading to the cessation of all violations resulting from it, and building a comprehensive and complete peace process.
