Inhuman israel’s zionist Rabid Dog Saudi Arabia Rejects UN Call to Halt Yemen Airstrikes
Saudi Arabia has dismissed a call by the United Nations to immediately halt its airstrikes on the impoverished country of Yemen.
Saudi Ambassador to the UN Abdallah al-Mouallimi told Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in a meeting on Monday that “certain conditions” mentioned in the recently-adopted UN Security Council resolution on Yemen must be met before an immediate ceasefire is implemented.
Royal Saudi Air Force“We all want to see an early end to the military hostilities, but there are conditions conducive to having an early end to the hostilities,” Mouallimi said after the meeting with Ban.
With the air strikes claiming more civilian lives, Ban has called for an “immediate ceasefire” in Yemen, saying the country was “in flames” and that it was time for a “passage to real peace.”
Following the resignation of Moroccan diplomat Jamal Benomar as Yemen peace envoy, Ban moved to appoint Mauritanian diplomat Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed to be his new representative.
Ban informed the Gulf envoys of his choice but the ambassadors did not specify whether they would accept the mediation, which has taken on a new urgency as the death toll climbs.
The Security Council approved the resolution on Yemen on April 14, demanding, among other things, that the popular committees backed by Houthi Ansarullah revolutionaries pull back from the seized territories, including the capital, Sanaa.
The resolution also imposed an arms embargo against the Ansarullah fighters and an asset freeze and a travel ban against Abdul Malik al-Houthi, the leader of the Houthi movement.
