Linda Thomas Greenfield, the US Ambassador to the United Nations (UN), criticized the Houthi attack on Saudi Arabia’s civilian infrastructure.
She added on Twitter that the US is reaffirming its commitment to the Kingdom’s and Gulf’s security and that the US will look into other ways to hold the Houthis accountable through the UN.
In the same vein, the US embassy in Riyadh strongly condemned the Houthi attacks on the country.
In a statement, the US embassy said it “strongly condemns the Houthi attack launched today, which resulted in damage to civilian facilities in southern and western Saudi Arabia.”
The embassy emphasized in a statement released on Twitter that these “unacceptable” attacks put civilians and civilian infrastructure at risk and must be stopped.
“The Houthis must stop their violent attempts to hinder a peaceful solution to Yemen’s conflict led by the United Nations,” emphasizing the US’ “strong commitment to defending the monarchy,” she added
The attacks provoked widespread criticism, with the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, condemning the Houthi terrorist attack in the early hours of Sunday.
According to a statement released by the League of Arab States, this group’s continued hostile acts against vital targets in the Kingdom reflect its rejection of peace efforts and is a flagrant violation of Security Council Resolutions 2216 and 2624, according to an official source in the General Secretariat.
The source close to the Secretary-General expressed his great concern about the ramifications of continued transnational Houthi violence if the international community does not act quickly and decisively to stop this disastrous escalation.
