On Friday, the Saudi-led Arab Coalition announced that they had intercepted and destroyed 3 drones launched by the Ansarallah Movement from the Hodeidah Governorate towards the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The spokesman for the Coalition forces, Brigadier General Turki Al-Maliki, said, “The terrorist Houthi militia continues to violate the Stockholm Agreement and breach the ceasefire in Hodeidah, and continues to use the Hodeidah Governorate as a place for launching hostilities and terrorist operations by launching ballistic missiles and drones, and launching explosive and remote-controlled boat attacks, which represents a real threat to the region.”
He added, “the Coalition forces are taking appropriate measures to deal with these hostile and terrorist acts in accordance with international humanitarian law and its customary rules, while continuing to support the political efforts of the Special Envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General to Yemen to end the coup and reach a comprehensive political solution.”
