Houthis reject UNSC statement on Yemen as blind bias

2021-10-22 | Since 7 Month

MUSCAT (Debriefer)--The Houthi group rejected the latest statement of the United Nations Security Council on Yemen as a blind bias which could help prolong the war.

The Security Council is taking the side of the Saudi-led coalition and this is obstructing the implementation of its resolutions, the group's spokesperson Mohammed Abdulsalam said in a statement on Twitter on Thursday.

In self-defence, we will continue to face the Saudi-led aggression with all possible means, he said.

The Iran-allied group ousted the internationally recognised government and seized power in late 2014. Its takeover sparked a civil war and a Saudi-led military campaign that have caused the world's largest humanitarian crisis.

On Wednesday, the council urged the warring parties to cease hostilities as it expressed concerns over deepening humanitarian suffering, human rights violations, including child recruitment and sexual violence, and the crash of the national currency.

It also urged them to facilitate the flow of fuel into the country.
