A U.N.-mediated truce to the war in Yemen went into effect a minute before midnight Wednesday, hours after Arab coalition airstrikes hit military bases in the capital Sanaa and rival militias battled near the border with the kingdom.The statement said the coalition would respect the three-day truce provided its foes in the Iran-allied Houthi movement also complied, allowed aid supplies to reach combat areas and kept calm on the border.Several previous cease-fires have failed to pave the way for an end to the conflict, but have significantly slowed fighting in the war which has killed at least 10,000 people.Hadi told state news agency Saba Wednesday that he expected his foes would violate the truce.
