Al-Eryani pointed out that the decision is part of the state of international laxity in dealing with the Houthi militia, ignoring its continuous escalation in Marib, turning a blind eye to its daily crimes and violations against civilians, its attacks on neighboring countries, and threatening shipping lanes, believing that it can be pushed to engage in efforts to calm down and bring peace to the region. Yemen and the region.
