We are concerned at reports of airstrikes in Sana’a on 13 June. This followed the Houthi attack on Abha airport on 12 June, on which we expressed our deep concern and urged parties to urge restraint and commit to the UN peace process. The UK continues to call on all parties to the conflict in Yemen to exercise restraint, comply fully with international humanitarian law and implement the Stockholm Agreement without delay to improve the humanitarian situation in Yemen.
