Ansar Allah Condemn Foreign Intervention in Yemen
Senior officials in Yemen blame the Saudi coalition and its intervention for the crisis devastating Yemen.
A political solution in Yemen will not be reached before the Saudi-led coalition intervention ends, Hussein al-Ezzi, a senior Ansar Allah official, said Thursday.
"Foreign intervention is a significant obstacle in the path to reaching a Yemeni-Yemeni political solution," Salvation Government Foreign Minister al-Ezzi said on Twitter.
He asserted his belief that the international community turning a blind eye on foreign intervention in Yemen is one of the most prominent reasons behind the prolongation of the war.
"I rule out the chance or possibility for an inter-Yemeni political solution before the non-Yemeni party is put aside," he said.
The members of the Security Council demanded an "immediate nationwide ceasefire" in Yemen, citing Resolution 2565. The members stressed the need for "de-escalation by all, including an immediate end to the Houthi escalation in Ma'rib," the US mission to the United Nations said.

Salem Al-Awkali, a member of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council condemned Saudi Arabia, calling it to stop its lying, acts, and "Muslim Brotherhood facades," which he said, "Wasted the north and now pose a threat to the south."
The Saudi-imposed war on Yemen has left more than 233,000 people dead. The war has also led to 80% of the 30 million Yemenis relying on humanitarian aid, constituting the world's worst humanitarian crisis, as declared by the United Nations.
Other factors to this humanitarian crisis include the mass displacement of the Yemeni population, the destruction of Yemen's infrastructure, and the epidemics within the country.
