Riyadh, June 15, 2020, SPA -- Statement by the Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen COL Turki Al-Malki
“Coalition forces have successfully intercepted and destroyed today, Monday, a bomb-laden UAV launched by the terrorist Iran-backed Houthi militia to deliberately target civilians and civilian objects in (Khamis Mushait).
This terrorist act is an extension of the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia’s terrorist attempts to target innocent civilians and civilian objects, the most recent was the attempt to target civilians and civilian objects in (Najran) with a ballistic missile on (13 June 2020). The continuation of the Houthi militia in its hostile, terrorist acts using bomb-laden UAVs to target innocent civilians is a blatant violation of the customary International Humanitarian Law.
The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition will continue to apply and implement all decisive and rigorous measures to neutralize and destroy such capabilities to protect innocent civilians from these terrorist acts and haphazard, villainous attempts in accordance with the customary International Humanitarian Law.”
