US Senator: Houthi targeting of civilians is a terrible behavior that must be condemned internationallyEnglish - منذ 11 يوم و 2 ساعة و 55 دقيقة
Democratic US Senator Bob Mendenez stressed the need for the international community to condemn the horrific attack of the Houthi militia in Marib.
Mendeniz said that the Houthi attack on a gas station in Marib is not justified by any legitimate military purpose, pointing out that targeting civilians is the behavior of a party not interested in peace.
The Chargé d'Affairs of the US Ambassador to Yemen, Cathy Westley, had expressed her horrific shock at the Houthi militia's targeting of a fuel station in Marib with a ballistic missile, which led to civilian casualties, including children.
Westley said in a message posted on the US embassy's Facebook account on Sunday evening: "We are appalled by reports that the Houthis used a ballistic missile to destroy a gas station in Marib, killing and wounding civilians."
She added, "According to what was reported, the Houthis then used a drone to attack an ambulance crew who came to help the victims," stressing the need to stop this inhumane violence immediately.
