Statement by the Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen COL Turki Al-Malki
“The terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia launched a ballistic missile from (Sana’a) governorate this morning (Sunday, 18 October 2020), using civilian objects as a launch site. The missile fell short (159) km after launch in Yemeni soil in (Sa’dah) governorate.
The Houthi militia continues its flagrant violations of the International Humanitarian Law by launching ballistic missiles that fall indiscriminately on civilians and population centers, threatening the lives of hundreds of innocent civilians.
The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition will continue to undertake all deterrent, rigorous measures to protect civilians in Yemen, and safeguard regional and international security".
