The United States on Friday said that it joins the international community; in condemning the attacks against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that targeted an oil facility in Jazan.

In a statement, the US Department of State notes also that the attack; comes days after Saudi Arabia and Yemen announced a commitment to reach a ceasefire and engage in UN-led peace talks.

"The actions by the Houthis are also a clear provocation; in order to perpetuate the conflict. This is also the latest in a series of Houthi attempts to disrupt global energy supplies and threatens civilian populations;" US State Department said in the statement.

"The Houthis' actions are prolonging the suffering of the Yemeni people and jeopardizing peace efforts at a critical moment when the international community; is increasingly united; behind a ceasefire and a resolution of the conflict," the statement read.

"We again can call on all parties to commit seriously to and strictly uphold a ceasefire; and engage in negotiations under UN auspices, in conjunction with UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths and U.S. Special Envoy Tim Lenderking," the statement added.
