The international coalition, led by Saudi Arabia on Thursday, claimed to have shot down a drone loaded with explosives by the Houthis from Yemen against Saudi territory without commenting on possible victims.
Coalition spokesman Turki al Malki accused the Houthis of “using the (Yemeni) province of Hodeida as a launch vehicle for ballistic missiles and explosive-laden drones, which poses a credible threat to regional and international security”. .
He has also argued that these rebel attacks “undermine political efforts to successfully implement the Stockholm Agreement” and are “in breach of the Stockholm Agreement and the Hodeida Armistice Agreement”.
On the other hand, he stressed that the coalition “continues to use appropriate procedures to deal with these hostile acts of terrorism in accordance with humanitarian law” and that it “continues to support the political efforts of the United Nations Special Envoy (Martin Griffiths) to put an end to the coup and a political solution. “
