US directing Saudi attacks on Yemen: Houthi leader

KONFRONTASI - The leader of Yemen’s Houthi movement has condemned Saudi Arabia’s military aggression against Yemen, saying that the US is “sponsoring and directing” the attacks on Yemen.

 Abdul-Malik al-Houthi made the remarks in a televised address on Sunday in reaction to Saudi Arabia’s deadly attacks targeting Yemeni people across the country.

“The US is sponsoring the attacks. The US is directing the attacks against Yemen,” the leader said.

The US has authorized its “criminal hands” to kill people in Yemen, he said.

Al-Houthi described Saudi Arabia’s move to target the Yemeni people as “silly and unacceptable.”

The Houthi leader said the aggressors, Saudi Arabia, the US and Israel, are killing innocent Yemeni people and are targeting Yemen’s infrastructure by destroying mosques, schools, markets, and other places.

The claims that the attacks are for the sake of the Yemeni people is silly and illogical, the Houthi leader said, adding that the attacks are a “justification” for killing innocent people.[ptv]
