U.N. to launch first peace talks in two years

46 Houthi terrorists killed in clashes with Army in Yemen
 Warring Yemenis due to attend the first peace talks since late 2015 on Thursday face an uphill struggle to rescue attempts to end a war waged by Iran and its militias and countered by Saudi Arabia and its Arab and Western allies.
U.N. Special Envoy Martin Griffiths wants Yemen’s government and the Iranian-aligned Houthi movement to work towards a deal to end the war, remove foreign forces from Yemeni territory, and establish a national unity government, Reuters said.
A Saudi-led coalition of Sunni Muslim Arab states backed by Western powers, including the United States and Britain, intervened in Yemen’s civil war in 2015 against the Houthis to restore the internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. Subsequent peace talks flopped.
