Over the past six months, the Government of Yemen and the Houthis have taken important and bold steps towards peace by agreeing to, and twice renewing, a nationwide truce negotiated by the United Nations. With the 2 October deadline for another extension quickly approaching, the Secretary-General strongly urges the Yemeni parties not only to renew but also to expand the truce’s terms and duration, in line with the proposal presented by the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy, Hans Grundberg.
The truce, which first came into effect on 2 April 2022, has brought the longest period of relative calm to Yemen since the beginning of the war.
The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says that an attack left scores of civilians killed and injured in the outskirts of Zaporizhzhia, in the south of the country. The event took place earlier in the morning, when civilians lining up to cross to areas under Russian control were hit by shelling, according to humanitarian colleagues on the ground.
In Mali, the UN peacekeeping mission continues to support Malian authorities to bolster the capacity of its security forces to respond to threats, particularly in the Centre and North regions. The Mission has been supporting a training organized by the Ministry of Security and Civil Protection, which is responsible for the security of civil and judicial authorities throughout the country.United Nations YouTube Channel
