“Houthi Attacks Impacting Civilians”

WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 7, 2021)—the US State Department released this statement regarding the war in Yemen.  “As the President is taking steps to end the war in Yemen and Saudi Arabia has endorsed a negotiated settlement, the United States is deeply troubled by continued Houthi attacks.  We call on the Houthis to immediately cease attacks impacting civilian areas inside Saudi Arabia and to halt any new military offensives inside Yemen, which only bring more suffering to the Yemeni people.  We urge the Houthis to refrain from destabilizing actions and demonstrate their commitment to constructively engage in UN Special Envoy Griffiths’ efforts to achieve peace.  The time is now to find an end to this conflict.”
