The U.S. State Department condemned a 3 October Huthi missile attack in Marib, and highlighted that “there is an international consensus that now is the time to end the conflict, and the Republic of Yemen Government and Saudi Arabia have committed to stop fighting and resume political talks. The Huthis are standing in the way of peace”. Washington went on to assert that “since the beginning of the year, the Huthis have intensified their attacks, both inside Yemen and against Saudi Arabia… We call on the Huthis to stop fighting and engage in UN-led talks to bring an end to this devastating war”.
