Arab Coalition Spokesman said that Houthis continued to violate humanitarian laws.

The official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen, Colonel Turki Al Malki, said that the Iranian-backed Houthi militias launched a ballistic missile on Saturday from Sana'a civilian infrastructure.

Al-Malki said that the attack took place at 6:33am, and that the ballistic missile had fallen 200 km after its launch in Al Safra directorate, Saada governorate, in a densely populated agricultural and civilian area.

The Arab Coalition Spokesman said that Houthi militias continued to violate international humanitarian laws by firing ballistic missiles indiscriminately, adding that such actions threaten the lives of hundreds of civilians.

He noted that Coalition forces continue to take strict measures to neutralise and destroy these ballistic capabilities to protect civilians inside Yemen and to also safeguard regional and international security.
