Houthi militias have targeted three Saudi aid trucks that were carrying relief aid meant for Yemeni citizens in Marib.
The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) said in a statement that three trucks were bombed while preparing to distribute food aid in Marib early on Thursday morning.
“The competent teams in the Coalition to Support the Legitimacy in Yemen began to investigate the incident. Preliminary evidence indicated that an improvised explosive device was planted at the place where the trucks stopped,” KSrelief said.
The statement also said that the three trucks were bombed at 1:00 am local Yemeni time on Thursday, when they were unloading food aid in the city of Marib. As a result of the explosion, the trucks caught fire destroying the food aid for Yemeni people which is part of the ongoing KSrelief aid program.
KSrelief stressed that such an incident would not affect the process of distributing humanitarian and food aid to Yemeni people as part of the Hope Restoration Operation.
