Iran proposed a peace plan for Yemen Tuesday and called for an end to Saudi-led airstrikes against Houthi rebels allied to Tehran, as militiamen loyal to deposed President President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi said they had pushed back Houthi fighters at several points in southern Yemen, including districts of the port city of Aden, the focal point of a conflict that entered its most dangerous phase three weeks ago.The pull-out deprives the Houthis of a bridge to downtown areas where they face heavy resistance from local fighters.In the southern town of Houta in Lahej province, fighters said they attacked a Houthi tank with rocket-propelled grenades and machineguns on Monday night, killing about 15 rebels.Weeks of street battles have left parts of once thriving Aden in ruins and led to shortages of water, food and electricity. But armed townspeople say they have laid siege to pockets of Houthi and army fighters loyal to Saleh, forcing them to surrender in the dozens after running out of supplies.
