Current situation in Yemen, result of US support to Saudi Arabia: Al-Houthi
Yemen (IP) - Head of the Supreme Political Council of Yemen Mohammed Ali al-Houthi said that the escalation of raids on the Yemeni capital of Sana’a, by the Saudi-led aggression is a US decision announced on Tuesday from Riyadh, that proves its participation and support for the continuation of the aggression against Yemen.
Iran Press/Middle East: “Brian Hook (US Special Representative for Iran) announced support and assistance to Saudi Arabia from there (Riyadh) yesterday,” al-Houthi wrote in a post published on his Twitter page on Wednesday.
Referring to the US-Saudi intensive raids on Sana’a and Sa'dah, he said: “What is happening now is a result of the US decision on rejecting peace.”
He held the US, Saudi Arabia, and their coalition responsible for disturbing the peace process.
Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of former president Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crushing Ansarullah.
The war has also taken a heavy toll on the country’s infrastructure, destroying hospitals, schools, and factories.
The UN says over 24 million Yemenis are in dire need of humanitarian aid, including 10 million suffering from extreme levels of hunger.
