4. SOUNDBITE (English) Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, United Nations:
“We condemn the multiple drone and ballistic missile attacks reportedly carried out yesterday against multiple locations in Saudi Arabia, for which the Houthis – who also call themselves Ansar Allah – have claimed responsibility. We're also concerned about the Saudi-led coalition airstrikes reportedly carried out yesterday on Sana'a and Hodeidah apparently in response to the initial attack. We urge all parties to abide by their obligations under international humanitarian law. It's really quite simple, such actions are detrimental to the mediation efforts being carried out by our Special Envoy Martin Griffiths, who will continue to work with all parties to advance the political process to reach a negotiated settlement to end the conflict.”
