Yemeni Information Minister Muammar Al-Eryani said today, Tuesday, that the Houthi armed group leaders’ talk of a military escalation against it “confirms the failure of its plans.”

He continued, “Yemenis and the whole world are aware of the Houthi militia’s rejection of peace, its undermining of all calm and ceasefire efforts in implementation of Iranian dictates, its pursuit of political and military escalation, especially on the fronts in Ma’rib Governorate, and its continued terrorist attacks on civilian objects in the liberated and neighboring areas.”
He said: “The international community, the United Nations, and the UN and American envoys are required to realize these facts, provide real support to the legitimate government in the battles to restore the state and overthrow the coup, to exert maximum political pressure on the Houthi militia, to include it on international terrorism lists, and to impose severe sanctions on its leaders.”

He also added that the Houthi militia is taking government headquarters, civilian and vital facilities, residential neighborhoods, homes, mosques and markets as “dens for storing weapons and managing its terrorist activities.”
He stressed that this constitutes “a flagrant violation of international laws and covenants that criminalize the intrusion of civilians and endangering their lives.”
