According to the Saudi media, Gulf foreign ministers have called on the United Nations to pass a Chapter 7 resolution which authorizes the use of military force or the imposition of economic sanctions for the purposes of crises deescalation.
Power in Yemen is currently in the hands of the Ansar Allah Houthi rebel group. On February, 6 Houthis dissolved the Yemeni parliament and created a presidential council in a "constitutional declaration."
On Thursday UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the Security Council that Yemen is "collapsing before our eyes."
The Houthis, who are the main opposition group in Yemen, first staged massive protests against tribal injustice on the part of the Yemeni government last August. They called for the resignation of the president and several officials.
Following months of clashes across Yemeni capital Sanaa, the group captured the presidential palace and government buildings, leading to the resignations of Yemeni President Abd Mansour Hadi and the country's government in January.
