Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 10th of August 2019 SPA - Colonel Turki Al Malki, the official spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen, said that the Coalition's joint command is calling for an immediate ceasefire in the Yemeni interim capital, Aden, starting after midnight at 01:00 a.m. on 10/12/1440 H (Sunday 11th of August 2019) and stresses that it will use military force against anyone who violates it.
The command calls on all components and military formations of the transitional and the security belt forces to return immediately to their positions and withdraw from the positions that they have seized during the past days, and not harm public and private property, he said.
Colonel Al Malki said that the Command of the Joint Forces of the Coalition followed the rapid deterioration of events after the period of calm that followed its previous announcement on 06 Dhul Hijjah 1440 H (7th of August 2019), and it categorically rejects these dangerous developments and will not hesitate to confront anyone who violates this announcement and seeks to continue fighting and sedition and harm security and stability or harm state institutions in the Yemeni interim capital (Aden).
He called on all fighting parties and components to resort to reason and give priority to national interest and not present the opportunity to the Houthi terrorist militia and other terrorist organizations such as AQAP and ISIS organizations which kindled the fire of sedition and division among the one people of Yemen.
The Command of the Joint Forces thanks the Yemeni national leaders who responded to the call of the Coalition and the appeals of the Yemeni people and gave priority to the higher interest of the Yemeni people.
