Houthis condemned for continued armed conflict
DUBAI: The Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Abdul Latif bin Rashid Al-Zayani has condemned the continuation of armed conflict in Aden, Saudi state news agency SPA reported on Saturday.
His comments came on the same day a Houthi drone targeting Khamis Mushait in Saudi Arabia, was intercepted. Al-Zayani described the ongoing war as an “outrageous crime that violates the bonds of brotherhood, religion and humanitarian values.”
He added that it endangered the lives of civilians and threatened security and stability in the region. But Al-Zayani said the current stage required Yemeni forces to achieve security and stability in the country.
His views were mirrored by Abdullah bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, who said there was a need to focus on eliminating the Houthi militia and other terrorist groups.
Al-Nahyan called for a responsible and serious action to end the clashes and maintain security and stability. source
