Will Yemen's first truce in years hold?

First ceasefire in four years in war-torn country's strategic port city of Hodeidah is significant, analyst says.

    Yemen's port city of Hodeidah is enjoying a fragile calm after a UN-brokered ceasefire deal between Houthi fighters and forces loyal to the government came into effect.

    The development has been hailed by many as a positive step on the path to peace for the war-torn country.

     

    Ibrahim Fraihat, an associate professor of conflict resolution at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, talks to Al Jazeera about why he believes the ceasefire is a significant development in the long-standing war.
