Al-Maalami: The coalition has taken specific measures to avoid injuring civilians
Saudi Arabia’s UN envoy, Abdullah al-Maalami, said that the Arab coalition forces had taken specific measures to avoid injuring civilians in Yemen.
He added that the UN report proved that the Houthi militias along with the fighters of the ousted Ali Saleh have been recruiting children and using them as shields.
He explained that Saudi Arabia has worked to rehabilitate the children who have been recruited by the militias of Yemen.
In addition, al-Maalami said that the Yemeni militias fired about 30 ballistic missiles towards the Saudi borders.
He confirmed that the coalition investigated 37 cases after allegations of targeting civilians in Yemen, noting that he seriously inspected all allegations of injuries among civilians.
Al-Maalami said that the coalition works on the presumption that all areas of Yemen are civilian occupied until “the contrary is proven.”
In another context, Al-Maalami said that the Kingdom condemns the violations of the Israeli occupation against the Palestinians.
