Al-Maliki: Coalition continues to neutralize capabilities of Houthi militia
Arab coalition for the Support of Legitimacy in Yemen announced that it continues to neutralize the qualitative capabilities of Iran-backed Houthi militia.
Speaking at a weekly press conference in Riyadh, spokesperson Col. Turki Al-Maliki said that the coalition forces have dealt with a Houthi booby-trapped boat that was aimed at a merchant ship in the Red Sea.
Col. Al-Maliki pointed out the coalition intercepted the Houthi drones and missiles, stressing that several stores for weapons and missiles belong to Houthi militia have been destroyed.
The Houthis are deliberately using residential neighborhoods to hide their weapons stores, he said.
The Houthi militia directly targets civilians and continues to violate international humanitarian law and Stockholm agreement.
The coalition is protecting the Yemeni citizens at the request of the legitimate government in Yemen and we will continue to provide assistance to the Yemeni people,” Al-Maliki added.
