The US blasted the Iran-backed Houthis for their latest attack on civilian targets inside Yemen as they continue to refuse a ceasefire to end the yearslong war.

“I deplore the latest Houthi attacks on Marib, which killed and injured dozens, including women and children,” Charge d’Affaires Cathy Westley said in a statement posted to Twitter.

Westley called on the Houthis to “break this endless cycle of senseless violence” and agree to a comprehensive ceasefire.

The US diplomat’s comments came after the Houthis launched two ballistic missiles at a mosque in Yemen’s Marib.
