Joint Coalition Forces Intercept, Destroy (1) Bomb-Laden UAV, (2) Ballistic Missiles Launched by Iran-Backed Terrorist Houthi Militia Toward the Kingdom
Statement by the Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen COL Turki Al-Malki stated the following:
“Joint Coalition forces intercepted and destroyed this morning a bomb-laden UAV launched to target civilians and civilian objects in (Khamis Mushait), and (2) ballistic missiles launched this evening by the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia in a deliberate, systematic targeting of civilians and civilian objects in (Khamis Mushait).
The Houthi militia continues to violate the international humanitarian law, and launch these failed terrorist attempts to target civilians and civilian areas. Such actions continue to threaten regional and international security and undermine all political efforts to end the coup and reach a comprehensive political solution in Yemen.
The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition will continue to undertake all proportionate measures to tackle these hostile, terrorist acts in accordance with the Customary International Humanitarian Law.”
