Riyadh, Statement by the Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen COL Turki Al-Malki
“Joint Coalition forces were able to intercept and destroy (2) ballistic missiles launched by the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia to deliberately target civilians and civilian object, and (6) bomb-laden USVs launched by the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia launched deliberately from (Sana’a) to target civilians and civilian objects in the Kingdom.
The terrorist Houthi militia is deliberately escalating hostilities as it targets civilians and civilian objects in Yemen and neighboring countries using ballistic missiles and UAVs
The Joint forces will display their efficiency in handling and foiling these threats through monitoring, destruction and tackling them within areas under the Houthi militia’s control.
The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition will continue to implement and undertake all necessary procedures to protect civilians and civilian objects, in addition to all operational procedures to put a stop to these terrorist acts and failed attempts in accordance with the customary International Humanitarian Law.”
