Saudi Arabia has called on the United Nations Security Council to "shoulder its responsibility in ending threats posed by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia to international peace and security and; to hold the militia accountable" for its violent activities.
In a letter, Abdallah Al-MouallimiAl-Mouallimi, the permanent Saudi representative to the UN; also urged members of the council to strongly condemn acts of terrorism by the Houthis.
The letter also highlighted the continuing attacks on the Kingdom launched by the militias; from Yemen "in a flagrant violation of international law and relevant Security Council resolutions."
One recent example given was a Houthi strike on Feb. 11 that targeted Abha International Airport, in the Kingdom's Asir region, during which a civilian aircraft was set on fire.
"Such an act of terrorism that targets civilian infrastructure and threatens innocent civilian travelers is a heinous war crime, and the Houthi militias must be held accountable in accordance with international humanitarian laws," Al-Mouallimi said in his letter.
