Meanwhile, the Arab Parliament strongly condemned the Houthi militia’s aggressive attack with two booby-trapped boats against oil tankers that crossed Bab-el-Mandeb Strait in the Red Sea.

In a statement issued today, the Arab Parliament warned of the danger of the Houthi terrorist attacks against oil tankers, as they target energy sources, especially in light of the turmoil in global oil markets as a result of global events.

Meanwhile, the Secretary-General of Arab League (AL) Ahmed Aboul Gheit expressed great concern that the crises of the Arab region would be forgotten or ignored in light of the current tense international situation.

In his speech yesterday before the Security Council on cooperation between the Security Council and the Arab League, Aboul Gheit cautioned that these crises will not find their way to a solution on their own, but rather this international situation may inflame and complicate them further.

Gheit pointed out that in Yemen, the Houthi militia is still rejecting the principle of negotiation and a political settlement of the crisis, and instead, it used to resort to threatening its neighbours with drones and ballistic missiles, praising in this regard the Security Council Resolution 2624, which was adopted and imposed more sanctions on Houthi militia, with designate it as a terrorist organization.
