The leader of Houthi rebels in Sa'ada declared withdrawal from all Saudi areas they had over controlled since the beginning of fighting with Saudi troops in November.
Abdul Malik Al Houthi, the leader of rebels, said, "we announce withdraw from all Saudi areas."
"The withdrawal is s real chance for peace and the Saudis have to value this initiative," he said in audio recording distributed to media on Monday.
He threatened of starting an open war against Saudi Arabia in case it continued its attacks against Al Houthis.
Local sources said, "the announcement of withdrawal of Al Houthis from all Saudi territory comes after an agreement between the Yemeni government and the Saudi government and Al Houthi rebels on the basis that Al Houthis had committed to the five conditions set by the government for stopping the war."
