Amid more clashes Thursday in Yemen, the country's Shiite rebels confirmed their endorsement of a U.S.-brokered cease-fire deal previously announced by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.However, the backing of the deal by Yemeni rebels, also known as Houthis, was a moot point since Yemen's internationally recognized government has already dismissed the plan as "unilateral," saying it was not involved in recent talks between Kerry and a Houthi delegation in Oman.Houthis descended from their northern enclave in 2014 to take Sanaa and much of northern Yemen, forcing President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi to flee the country.Warplanes from the pro-government coalition pounded rebel positions in Saada, the northern fiefdom of the Houthis, as well as in Nahm and Sarwah, close to the rebel-held capital Sanaa, they said.
