ncinerated bodies of Marib children show ugliness of Houthis, int'l letdown of Yemen
RIYADH - SABA
Yemen's Minister of Information said the incinerated bodies of two children killed by a Houthi missile attack in Marib on Saturday shows the ugliness of the Houthi militia's criminality and the international community's letdown of the Yemeni people.
In a statement to Saba, Muammar al-Eryani said, " The incinerated bodies of five-year-old girl Layan Taher and the boy Hassan Alhubeishi in the Houthi militia's attack on an oil station - where civilian casualty toll, according to the latest updates, has reached 21- shows the ugliness of the Houthi militia's criminality and the international community's letdown of the Yemeni people."
"This despicable terrorist crime is a continuation of the series of non-stopping deliberate attacks the Houthi militia have been waging against the neighborhoods of Marib city," he said.
He said these attacks "are meant to incur the highest possible casualty toll amongst civilians."
Al-Eryani warned of catastrophic risks posed by the Houthi militia who are waging an incessant war to press forward on Marib province where 7.5% of all Yemen's population and 60% of all Yemen's IDPs reside.
Al-Eryani said, "The international community acts blind towards the Houthi crimes" saying the Yemeni people won't forget those who let it down.
