LONDON: Yemen on Wednesday condemned the Houthi attacks on Marib in a letter to the UN Security Council, saying the Iran-backed militia‘s targeting of civilians in Marib is causing a humanitarian catastrophe.
The Houthi militia launched a brutal offensive to take control of oil and gas-rich Marib from the internationally-backed government.
The offensive sparked international condemnation as it has served as a safe haven for tens of thousands of internally displaced persons who have been fleeing the fighting since the conflict began almost 7 years ago.Main category: Middle-EastTags: YemenIranUN Security Council
