Riyadh, March 05, 2021, SPA -- Statement by the Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen Brigadier General Turki Al-Malki
‏“The Royal Saudi Air Defense (RSAD) has intercepted and destroyed today (Friday), (6) bomb-laden UAVs launched by the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia in a deliberate, systematic manner to target civilians and civilian objects in Khamis Mushait.
‏The Coalition is exercising utmost restraint in facing these flagrant violations of the International Humanitarian Law perpetrated by the Iran-backed Houthi militia, which amount to war crimes. The sources of these threats and imminent attacks using ballistic missiles and bomb-laden UAVs are being targeted decisively in conformity with the customary International Humanitarian Law.
‏The targeting operations to neutralize, dismantle and destroy the bomb-laden UAV and ballistic missile storage sites and mobile launch vehicles used to target civilians and civilian objects are conducted under accurate, real-time Intelligence and Surveillance monitoring operations, and through accurate, direct targeting of legitimate military targets.
‏We reaffirm that all Coalition military operations are carried out in conformity with the customary International Humanitarian Law.”
