Saudi Arabia-Houthi clashes stopped in Yemen

Saudi Arabia is no longer exchanging fire with Yemeni Houthis following a Houthi truce offer to the world's biggest oil exporter, and no fighters remained on Saudi land, a senior military commander said.

"Last night, since they announced a ceasefire, they did not fire and we did not have any engagement," Major General Said al-Ghamdi, commanding general of first paratrooper brigade, told journalists in the border area.

"They are not in our lands," Ghamdi said. "The battle has ended by God's will."
