Leader of Yemen's Houthi Movement Abdelmalik al-Houthi blasted the US for providing cover-up for Saudi Arabia in Yemen's attacks.

"The United States plays a major role in the aggression, including logistical support for air and naval strikes, providing various weapons and providing complete political cover for the aggression, specially protection from pressure by human rights groups and the United Nations,” al-Houthi said.

He further lambasted the negotiators loyal to the resigned president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, for the failure of the UN-brokered peace talks on the Yemeni conflict in Kuwait last month, arguing the Saudi-backed delegates did not understand the meaning of real dialogue.

“The hurdle facing negotiations and dialogue is that the other party wants to achieve through the talks what it wanted to achieve through war, not understanding that the path of dialogue and peace is different from the path of war,” al-Houthi pointed out.

Houthi’s remarks came on the same day that Saudi military aircrafts launched two separate airstrikes against residential neighborhoods in Yemen, killing nearly a dozen civilians.

At least four women and five children lost their lives on Friday after Saudi fighter jets struck an area in the Arhab district of the western Yemeni province of Sanaa.

Earlier on Friday, a civilian was killed and three others were wounded after Saudi warplanes pounded a cultural center in the adjacent coastal province of Hudaydah, FNA reports.
