The spokesman for the Arab Coalition in Yemen confirmed at a press conference in Riyadh on Monday that humanitarian aid is still entering Yemen through all entry ports, also revealing that Iran has supplied Houthi militias with weapons to target the international shipping in Bab al-Mandeb strait.

Colonel Turki al-Malki said that Houthi militias target the Hodeidah port with boat filled with bombs, which is a serious threat to shipping and world trade, stressing that there is an international understanding of these threats.

He pointed out that the militias have fired a total of 95 ballistic missiles until now and that coalition forces have thwarted and destroyed all of them. He highlighted that Houthi militias threatened many Yemeni tribes in the past few weeks.

He added that food and medical aid trucks have reached more than 400,000 Yemenis so far from Saudi Arabia.

“We have found a consent from all sides in Aden to restore stability to the temporary capital,” said al-Malki.

He stressed that the Yemeni national army is achieving sequential victories in al-Jawf on several fronts. He revealed a Houthi terrorist cell in Marib was arrested.
