The spokesman for the Arab coalition in Yemen, Colonel Turki al-Malki, condemned the Houthi threat against relief organizations and voiced the importance of protecting relief workers.

During a press conference on Monday, Malki said the Arab coalition issued hundreds of decisions not to strike any targets during relief operations out of concern for relief workers’ safety.

Malki also said that legitimate forces in Yemen are preparing to cut the Houthis’ route of supplies towards Saada.

He also played a video that showed the destruction of Houthi capabilities in Yemen such as destroying a missile launcher in Saada and a factory to manufacture drones in Hajjah and targeting Houthis in Al-Jawf axis.

Residents on the west coast launched a campaign to remove Houthi slogans, he also said, hinting that the Hodeidah Port has become a spot to smuggle weapons to the Houthis.

Malki also commented on the Houthis’ launch of four ballistic missiles towards Saudi Arabia during the past two months, adding that one of these missiles fell in Yemen.

According to Malki, there was an attempt to smuggle forged money and passports to the Houthis in Saada to help them flee the country.

Forged money which nominal value is worth around $22 million and more than 5,000 passports en route to Houthi commanders and their families in Saada were confiscated.

Malki also denied that the coalition targeted any medical facility affiliated with Doctors Without Borders in Yemen on Monday.

He added that the coalition is working with the UN envoy in Yemen to give a chance for the political solution.
