The UN Security Council condemned the attack by Yemen’s Houthi militia on the Abha airport in southwestern Saudi Arabia on June 12 “in the strongest terms.”

A statement issued Monday by the UN’s most powerful body called for those behind “these reprehensible actions” to be held accountable.

The council statement, issued after a meeting on Yemen, urged the Houthis and the government “to make progress towards a comprehensive political settlement” of the conflict.
