US government condemns Houthi attacks on civilians in Saudi Arabia
"We strongly condemn all egregious Houthi drone and missile attacks in Saudi Arabia," said US State Department spokesman Ned Price.
A US State Department spokesman denounced the “egregious” attacks, labelling them “unacceptable” and “dangerous.”
The US government condemned the Houthi militias most recent attacks targeting civilians in Saudi Arabia.
According to Arab News, US State Department spokesman Ned Price addressed the Iran-backed militia’s recent attempts to target the city of Khamis Mushait.
“We strongly condemn all egregious Houthi drone and missile attacks in Saudi Arabia,” said US State Department spokesman Ned Price.
“And these attacks are unacceptable, they’re dangerous, they put the lives of civilians at risk.”
“We remain deeply concerned by the frequency of these attacks, including on Saudi Arabia. We strongly call on all parties to seriously commit to a ceasefire and engage in negotiations under UN auspices in conjunction with US Special Envoy (for Yemen) Tim Lenderking.”
Price urged the Houthis “to come to the table and to commit to peace and diplomacy in the region,” but added that attacks such as those on Monday “are not actions of a group who say that they want peace.”
Houthi militants fired two ballistic missiles toward the city of Khamis Mushait on Monday. The Arab coalition reported that they were launched from Saada city in northwestern Yemen and landed in two uninhabited areas near the Kingdom’s southern border.
