Around 15 Houthis were killed in Saada after ballistic missile, meant to target Saudi Arabia, blew up before launch, according to local sources in the Yemeni city. The sources added that missile experts were also among those killed.

The coalition forces in support of legitimacy in Yemen had previously released a video documenting some of the violations of the Houthi militias backed by Iran, specifically in relation to the use of residential and civilian areas for military purposes.

The video shows aerial footage of a weapons warehouse in the Razih district of Saada province. Gunmen also appear loading a truck, clearly in the middle of a residential area crammed with houses.

The Houthi militias use populated areas for military purposes. The video also shows children accompanied by Houthi fighters at a school in al-Hjla near Sana’a.
