Saudi-led coalition forces have accused Yemen's Houthi rebels of violating a ceasefire that has allowed aid agencies to deliver relief supplies. 

In a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency, the coalition said the rebels had violated the truce 12 times, including artillery and rocket attacks in several towns in the south. The coalition pledged its full commitment to the ceasefire. 

Meanwhile, residents said calm prevailed across most of the country on Thursday except in three cities, Taez, Daleh and oil-rich Marib, where intermittent exchanges of fire were reported. 

The five-day humanitarian truce -- that began late Tuesday -- is the first break in coalition airstikes since they began on March 26. Riyadh has warned it will punish any attempt to exploit the truce.
