The Iran-backed terrorist Houthis have been ramping up missile and drone attacks on targets in Saudi Arabia due to their “hopeless and miserable” losses on the ground in Marib and al-Jawf, according to Arab Coalition spokesperson Col. Turki al-Maliki.
“The Saudi naval and air defense forces possess high professionalism in dealing with these attacks. The Iran-backed terrorist Houthis are ramping up such attacks because of the hopeless and miserable situations and losses on the ground in Marib and al-Jawf,” al-Maliki told Al Arabiya early on Thursday.
Al-Maliki confirmed that the Houthis fired three ballistic missiles on Wednesday targeting the border cities of Najran, Jazan, and Khamis Mushait. The Houthis also sent a total of six explosives-laden drones over the Yemeni-Saudi Arabian border, all of which were intercepted and destroyed by the Arab Coalition.
He confirmed that Houthi reinforcements have been eliminated in Marib and al-Jawf, and more than 300 militia members have been killed recently on those two fronts, adding that the Iran-backed Houthi militia is unable to achieve any victory or advancement in al-Jawf.
Al-Maliki said that "the orders of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards are clear in occupied Sanaa," and that "the relationship between the Houthi militia, al-Qaeda, and ISIS is known."
“The Arab Coalition is a coalition made up of several countries that work according to international humanitarian laws. We believe in the role of the political process in finding a solution to the Yemeni conflict,” al-Maliki told Al Arabiya.
“But there will be no patience for the Houthis if any civilians are injured,” he warned.
