UN Yemen envoy urges immediate end to Houthi offensive

An increasingly intense assault by Yemen's Houthi rebels on the government-held city of Marib "must stop" amid spiraling humanitarian fallout, the UN's envoy for the country warned Thursday.

Martin Griffiths told the Security Council that the assault risks putting millions of civilians at risk, particularly as it threatens to reach camps for individuals who have already been displaced during the seven-year conflict.

"The military situation is extremely tense. Indeed, I don’t think it’s been this tense in the time I’ve had the privilege to be engaged with Yemen," he said. “The quest for territorial gain by force threatens all of the prospects in the peace process. The humanitarian situation is also worsening.”

Yemen is in the midst of what the UN describes as the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, with wide segments of the population combatting not just conflict but rampant food scarcity....REUTERS
