Foreign Ministry condemns Houthi's takeover of US embassy compound in Sana'a

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates condemned Saturday the Houthi militia’s seizure of the US Embassy compound in Sana’a, which was used before the embassy suspended its work in 2015.

Dozens of Yemeni citizens and their family members were detained and mistreated by Houthis just because they have worked for the United States in Sana’a in a caretaker capacity since the US Embassy there suspended operations in 2015. Several of these employees are still being held.

In a statement, the ministry's official spokesperson, Haitham Abu Al-Foul, expressed the Kingdom's condemnation and denunciation of these acts and practices.

Abu-Foul stressed the need for the "immediate and safe" release of all detainees, to leave the embassy compound, and return what was looted.
