The Pentagon announced Houthi bombardment of Saudi Arabia with Iranian missiles

The head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, said that Yemeni Houthi rebels fired on Saudi Arabia with missiles produced in Iran.

“We see that the Houthis are launching missiles delivered by Iran to Saudi Arabia … and this has to be stopped,” Mattis told reporters on his way to Saudi Arabia.

The Pentagon press service also indicated that he expressed the view that the UN should help resolve the conflict in Yemen through political methods.

Previously, Mattis said that the US is willing to make efforts to resolve the conflict in Yemen by conducting negotiations.
Translator comment: 
1. Has the reader ever read of Cameron, May, Merkel, Hollande, or Kerry or Tillerson speak of negotions for peace — and mean it?
2. Here is part of the Voice of America account of Mattis’ trip:
Mattis said the United States has seen “Iranian supplied missiles being fired by the Houthis into Saudi Arabia.” He vowed to work with U.S. allies to help the conflict, which has killed thousands of Yemenis, come to an end.
