Today is the final day of the temporary 15-day truce between the Al Houthis and the Government in Amran Governorate. There are reports of a troop build-up at entry and exit points (mainly at checkpoints) in the outskirts to Amran City, particularly the exit to towards Sana'a. The general situation in the city remains calm and humanitarian operations are continuing. But it is still unclear what will happen when the temporary truce expires. On 9 April, a clash was reported at a checkpoint near Qaren village, 8 km from Amran City, on the main road to Hajjah Governorate.
