For its part, the United Nations said that the missile attack on a mosque in the reception camp for training in the city of Marib in central Yemen, may disrupt the fragile political process that aims to stop the war that has been going on for nearly five years.
The attack, which occurred last Saturday night, hit the mosque as people gathered to pray in it, and the attack occurred with a ballistic missile.

The Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, Ahmed Abul-Gheit, condemned the treacherous terrorist attack, and considered that the attack, which is considered the bloodiest since the outbreak of the Yemeni war, again indicates the attempt of external parties to heat the Yemeni front to divert attention from its internal problems and challenges. Abul-Gheit stressed that the attack comes at a precise time, and its aim is to undermine the relative calm that prevailed during the recent period on the Yemeni scene, and then to disrupt any serious moves towards a peaceful solution, and instead to escalate the trend that only serves the agendas of regional powers seeking to use the Houthis Like a cat's paw.
