DUBAI, Dec. 29 (Reuters / EP) –

Yemen's Huthi insurgents have announced Sunday that they have attacked at least six targets in Saudi Arabia and three others in the United Arab Emirates, according to information from their Al Masriya television network.

Neither Saudi Arabia nor the Emirates have seen, for the moment, attacks on their territory. Both countries are part of the international coalition against the Huthi insurgents – in turn backed by Iran – in the framework of the civil war in Yemen, which has led to one of the world's greatest humanitarian catastrophes.

The Huthis, in this statement, make no mention of the alleged attack that they would have launched a few hours ago against a military parade starring the Yemeni separatist group – and fragile ally of the internationally recognized Government – Seat Belt, and which has left by the moment six dead and eight wounded.
