The Arab Coalition denied allegations by the Iran-backed Houthis that it carried out airstrikes in Yemen’s governorate of Dhale.

“The Coalition’s airstrikes have been halted since the truce went into effect,” the Coalition said in a statement on Wednesday, referring to the ceasefire announced on April 1 and extended for a further two months in June.

The Coalition added that “it takes and supports all measures to keep the truce intact among Yemeni parties.”
