21 Jan Saudi Arabia calls for support from Security Council to confront Houthi terrorism
Saudi Arabia has called for support from the UAE Security Council to take firm measures against the Iran-backed Houthi militia.
The cry comes after there have been recent attacks by the Houthi, the most recent including a targeted terrorist attack at Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Mohammed Al-Ateeq, The Kingdom’s deputy permanent representative to the UN, explained how the Houthis have been able to take advantage and harm Yemen residents, as well as destabilising the region and significantly affecting international peace and security.
Mohammed Al-Ateeq, said: “The occupation authorities continue to violate international resolutions and norms in occupied Palestine and practice the most heinous forms of injustice and aggression against the Palestinian people.
“The flagrant violation of the sanctity of the Ibrahimi Mosque in the city of Hebron by the Israeli president represents the tip of the iceberg of these violations.”
Al-Ateeq said the time has come for the Security Council to carry out their responsibilities and to firmly address the ongoing situation.
He added: “The Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militia confirms day after day its indifference to the aspirations of the Yemeni people, the stability of Yemen and its subversive role in threatening regional stability and international peace and security.”
