Ahmed Obeid Bin Daghr, Prime Minister of Yemen’s internationally recognized government, said on Friday that the Iran-backed Houthi militias targeting of three Saudi aid trucks and UAE ship was a flagrant threat to international peace, security and navigation.

“The militias continue their aggressive approach and do not obey the voice of reason and the international community is responsible for carrying out its duties to secure the international navigation and rescue the Yemeni people who are starved and killed by these militias stripped of all values and principles,” he said in a statement published by Yemen’s official News Agency,

He further called on the international community to take the necessary measures to stop the attacks, adding that the coup militias have rejected all options and initiatives for peace.

The prime minister said “return to the Gulf Initiative” and complying with the UN Security Council Resolution 2216 “are the shortest way to achieve peace, end the war and lead to the national general and comprehensive reconciliation.”
