CAIRO (Reuters) - The head of Yemeni Houthis’ Supreme Revolutionary Committee, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, said in a tweet on Saturday that Houthis unilateral redeployment from three main ports came as a result of the Saudi-led coalition’s refusal to implement the Stockholm Agreement, which laid out the groundwork for peace.

Yemen’s Houthi group agreed on Friday to unilaterally redeploy forces out of ports of Hodeidah, Salif and Ras Isa, between May 11 and May 14, a U.N. statement said earlier.

He added that the redeployment will begin on May 11 at 10 am local time (0700 GMT).
