SANAA [Reuters] – Iran's al-Houthi militia fired a lightly-armed drone from Sanaa and crashed in the northern Yemeni province of Amran, the official SPA news agency said on Tuesday.
The spokesman for the coalition forces in Yemen, Colonel Turki al-Maliki, said that the Iranian-backed terrorist Houthi militias launched this morning from Sanaa a booby-trapped drone that fell after taking off 35 kilometers in Amran governorate on civilian objects and innocent civilians.
Colonel al-Maliki explained that the Houthi militias continue to adopt terrorist operations through their means and media tools, which puts them and their terrorist leaders and planners to carry out such terrorist operations under legal responsibility and accountability under international humanitarian law.
He stressed that the continuation of its false propaganda by announcing the targeting of Abha International Airport confirms what has been clarified from the command of the joint forces of the coalition that it is no longer but lies and promotion of illusions in an effort to raise the morale of its terrorist elements and propaganda to mislead the Yemeni tribes to plunge their children into battles resulting in death and loss, in the service of the leadership of the militias and regime Iran.
Colonel al-Maliki concluded his statement by affirming the leadership of the joint coalition forces to continue to take strict and deterrent measures to neutralize and destroy these ballistic capabilities to protect civilians inside Yemen, and to protect regional and international security.
