Riyadh, Rajab 09, 1439 H. March 26, 2018 SPA -- Spokesman of the Coalition Forces for Supporting the Legitimacy in Yemen Colonel Turki Al-Malki confirmed today that the crimes committed by the Iranian regime, including trafficking of weapons, supporting the terror groups and organizations and providing them with qualitative military capabilities like ballistic and thermal missiles and drones as well as booby-trapped speed boats constitute devastating threat to regional and international security and flagrant violation of the international law and world community relevant resolutions, noting that the world community and the Security Council ought to take the necessary measures to hold the Iranian regime accountable for violating the UN Security Council resolutions, including 2231 and 2216.
In a press conference at the Armed Forces Club in Riyadh, Al-Malki said the Iran-backed Houthi militias have launched as many as seven ballistic missiles last night carrying the stamp of the terror-sponsor Iranian regime. Thanks to Allah Almighty, all missiles were successfully intercepted by the Saudi Royal Air Defense forces before reaching their targets in Riyadh (three), Jazan (two), and one in each of Najran and Khamis Mishait.
He said one of the missiles targeting Riyadh, regrettably, resulted in the martyrdom of an expatriate and injury of two, all Egyptians. The scattering splinters of the missiles have dispersed over a number of Riyadh civilian-populated neighborhoods, in a flagrant violation of the international law.
