Yemeni Houthis Call on U.N. to End Saudi Strikes: Statement

Yemeni Houthi rebels called on the United Nations on Saturday to seek an end to Saudi Arabian air strikes against them that they described as blatant aggression against the country.
Warplanes from a Saudi-led coalition are targeting Iranian-allied Houthis who have seized the capital Sanaa and large areas of the country.
"We want to emphasize the grave and tragic situation that comes in the light of the continued Saudi blatant aggression on our country and our people," said the Ansar Allah Zaydi Houthi movement's foreign relations official Hussein al-Ezzi, in a letter addressed to the U.N. secretary general.
