The US has voiced concern to the UN’s Yemen envoy over a recent uptick in Houthi attacks on Saudi Arabia, Middle East Monitor reported Thursday.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo thanked Martin Griffiths for his efforts to end the Yemen conflict but "expressed concern over the recent increase in Iranian-supported Houthi attacks into Saudi territory that exacerbate the conflict and deepen mistrust," the State Department said.

"The Secretary and the Special Envoy agreed that parties must continue working toward a political settlement and an end to the conflict in Yemen," spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in a statement.
