The United States condemned the Houthi attacks against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which recently targeted an oil facility in Jizan.
A statement issued by the office of the US State Department spokesman, Ned Briceoy, the night before last, indicated that the new Houthi attack came a few days after the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Republic of Yemen announced their commitment to reaching a ceasefire and engaging in peace talks led by the United Nations.
The statement considered the actions of the Houthis as a clear provocation aimed at perpetuating the conflict, noting that this is the latest in a series of Houthi attempts to disrupt global energy supplies and threaten the civilian population.
He stressed that these Houthi actions prolong the suffering of the Yemeni people and threaten peace efforts.
The US State Department statement renewed the call for all parties to seriously and strictly adhere to the ceasefire, and to participate in negotiations under the auspices of the United Nations, in cooperation with the United Nations special envoy Martin Griffiths and the US special envoy Tim Lenderking.
