Coalition intercepts and destroys three Houthi ballistic missiles, eight drones
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 13 - 05 - 2021

The Saudi-led Arab Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen announced on Thursday that its forces intercepted and destroyed three ballistic missiles and eight booby-trapped drones fired by Houthi militias against civilians in Saudi Arabia.
SPA news agency, citing a tweet by the coalition Thursday, said the ballistic missiles and the explosive-laden drones were fired in the direction of populated areas in the Kingdom.
"A cowardly act of hostility by the Houthi militia in firing drones and ballistic missiles was thwarted," the Coalition said a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA). The "hostile" attacks were targeting civilians, according to the statement.
"We are taking strict measures to deal with the sources of threat to protect civilians," the Coalition added in its statement.
The latest attacks came during the early morning hours on the first day of Eid Al-Fitr, the holiday in which Muslims worldwide celebrate the end of the holy of the holy month of Ramadan.
"The hostilities of the terrorist Houthi militia are contrary to divine values and international norms and do not observe religious rituals," the Coalition said.
Houthis have been violating international humanitarian law by attacking civilians, it said. The alliance pledged to take all necessary measures to deal with sources of such threats in line with the humanitarian international law and conventions. —SG
