UN Security Council Condemns Houthi Terrorist Attacks in Al-Dabba Oil Terminal in Yemen

Members of the United Nations Security Council expressed their strong condemnation of Houthi terrorist attacks by drones against Al-Dabba oil port, where an oil tanker was docked. The members considered these attacks a serious threat to the peace process, stability of Yemen and maritime security, including navigational rights and freedoms stipulated in international law. The UN Security Council also stressed that any escalation would only exacerbate the suffering of the Yemeni people, calling on Houthis to immediately cease such attacks, respect their obligations under international humanitarian law, prioritize the Yemeni people, and engage constructively in efforts to renew a truce.

The Council’s members renewed their support for the United Nations Special Envoy for Yemen, Hans Grundberg, in his efforts towards a negotiated and comprehensive Yemeni-led political settlement based on the agreed terms of reference.
