The US envoy to Yemen, Tim Lenderking, spoke about his country’s position on the recent Houthi escalation in Marib and its progress on several fronts, considering that the Houthi escalation in Ma’rib governorate has exacerbated the suffering of Yemenis.
He said during a meeting with representatives of several NGOs working in Yemen, to discuss the many challenges that humanitarian workers face as needs continue to grow in the country: “The Houthi escalation in Marib is not only an obstacle to peace, but also exacerbates the humanitarian situation that It is already on the edge of the abyss.”
These statements come as the Houthi militia continues to bomb civilians in the strategic governorate, especially in the Juba area.
The legitimate government had confirmed that the militia continues to systematically and deliberately bombard the homes of residents in the Juba district with various types of heavy and medium weapons, ballistic missiles and drones, to inflict the greatest number of casualties.
The Minister of Information, Muammar Al-Eryani, also explained that hundreds of families from Al-Juba and the displaced were forced to leave the district as a result of the Houthi military escalation and targeting of residential communities.
In addition, he called on the international community, the United Nations, the permanent members of the Security Council, and the UN and US envoys, to condemn and stop these reprisals that affect innocent civilians and constitute war crimes and crimes against humanity, and to criminalize and prosecute those responsible for them from the leaders and members of the militia as “war criminals.”
It is noteworthy that the militias targeted a number of houses in Al-Jarsha area in Al-Juba district, in addition to bombing the only school in the area with missiles.
Since last February, the Iranian-backed Houthis have continued their attacks on the oil-rich province, despite all international and international calls for the dangers threatening the security and safety of thousands of displaced children and women.
