CAIRO – 30 November 2020: Egypt’s Foreign Ministry condemned Houthi militias actions against civilians in Yemen and described it as ‘crimes.’

In an official statement, the Ministry said that Houthi’s latest attack against the civilians in Durayhimi district in Al Hudaydah Governorate left a number of innocent people killed and wounded including women and children.

Egypt voiced deep condolences to families of the victims and wished speedy recovery to the wounded.

Egypt has reiterated the importance of reaching a comprehensive settlement of the Yemeni crisis, said the statement.

Egypt stressed it is important the international community rallies up efforts to face all forms of terrorism, violence and extremism, added the statement.

On Thursday, Yemen’s Political Development Forum (PDF-Yemen) has called upon the UN Security Council to designate the Houthis as a terrorist group.

The forum further demanded the imposition of penalties on terrorist individuals, groups, institutions and entities associated with the Houthis, like UN’s Resolution 2368 (2017).

Acting under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations, the Council adopted resolution 2368 (2017), a sweeping 33-page text detailing the types of sanctions already imposed on Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS/Da’esh), Al-Qaida and associated individuals and groups.

PDF-Yemen is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental institution for intellectual and cultural activities, which was established for the principle Towards Safe and Sustainable Political Development.

The Foundation said in a statement that the Houthi terrorist attacks against civilians in Yemen or against Saudi Arabia threaten the right to life and expect hundreds of victims.

It also committed numerous crimes against the Yemeni people equal in gravity with what ISIS committed in Iraq and Syria before its defeat, according to the statement.
