US questions Houthis’ commitment to peace process

WASHINGTON, The US questioned the Houthis’ commitment to the political process in Yemen due to its response to peaceful efforts led by the UN.

The Iranian-backed group reportedly threatened to conduct more “reckless” missile attacks like the ones they had conducted on Sunday, the White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Friday.

“These attacks again demonstrate that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps is continuing to disrupt a nascent political process, escalate hostilities, and destabilize the region by proliferating weapons to the Houthis and others,” she noted.

“The United States will remain steadfast in helping our partners defend themselves, providing desperately needed humanitarian assistance, and supporting an inclusive United Nations process to help resolve the conflict and bring peace and security to the region,” Sanders added.
