Aden, NewsYemen:

The National Defense Council said that the escalation of the terrorist Houthi militia would exempt the Yemeni government from all the obligations that the Houthi militias repudiated.  Including the Stockholm Agreement and the elements of the collapsed humanitarian truce, and other service facilities, with a pledge to secure all means to reduce the side effects on citizens in areas under the forcible control of terrorist militias.

This came during an emergency meeting held yesterday, chaired by the President of the Presidential Leadership Council, Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, Dr. Rashad Al-Alimi, in the presence of all members of the Presidential Leadership Council, heads of legislative, executive and advisory authorities, and governors of Hadhramaut and Shabwa governorates, according to what was published by the state-run Saba Agency.

The meeting dealt with the repercussions of the terrorist operations of the Iranian-backed Houthi militia, which targeted the ports of Al-Daba and Al-Nashima in the Hadramout and Shabwa governorates.

According to what was published by Saba Agency, the National Defense Council listened to a number of briefings and reports from members of the National Defense Council and governorate governors, and the options offered to deal with these cowardly sabotage attacks that target international peace and security, and exacerbate the human suffering of the Yemeni people.

The Council took a number of firm decisions to deter such criminal attacks, and directed the government to immediately implement them in accordance with a chronic defensive, diplomatic and economic plan to protect the interests of the Yemeni people, and to thwart all miserable sabotage attempts of the Iranian destructive project in our country.

The Council called on the international community to assume its responsibilities regarding this dangerous escalation adopted by the Houthi militias and their supporters by targeting civilian objects and economic installations as a premeditated war crime that requires firm punishment by designating these militias as an international terrorist group and to take all consequential measures.
