Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the United States, Prince Khalid bin Salman, said on Friday that the kingdom strongly condemns the targeting of United Nations personnel by the pro-Iranian Houthi militias in Yemen.

In a tweet, Prince Khalid said: “Houthi militias violated their signed commitments in Stockholm and continue to flout International Law and escalate their aggression against the Yemeni people.”

On Thursday, the Houthi militias fired at the convoy of Patrick Cammaert, the UN’s head of ceasefire monitor group in Hodeidah, while he was on his way back to Hodeidah’s downtown following a meeting with the legitimate government’s delegation.

Following the attack, the UN spokesperson tweeted confirming that the UN team was safe.
