Riyadh, May 05, 2020, SPA -- A statement by the Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen COL Turki Al-Malki:
“The terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia launched two ballistic missiles this morning (Tuesday 05 May 2020) from (Sana’a) governorate using civilian objects as launching sites, the first missile fell short after (121) kilometers in (Amran), while the other fell short after (148) kilometers in (Sadah) governorate.
The Houthi militia continues to violate the International Humanitarian Law by launching ballistic missiles that fall indiscriminately on civilians and densely populated civilian areas, threatening the lives of hundreds of civilians.
These hostile acts, and ballistic missile launches represent the continued violations of the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia of the ceasefire and de-escalation initiative announced by the Coalition, which began on (09 April 2020). The violations have exceeded (2400) breaches using all kinds of SALWs, heavy weapons and ballistic missiles.
The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition continues to undertake all rigorous and deterrent measures to neutralize and destroy these ballistic capabilities to safeguard civilians in Yemen, and protect regional and international security.”
