Riyadh, August 06, 2020, SPA -- Statement by the Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen COL Turki Al-Malki
“Joint Coalition Forces intercepted and shot down a bomb-laden Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) launched toward the Kingdom this morning.
The terrorist Houthi militia continues to breach the (Stockholm) Agreement and the Hodeida ceasefire, and use Hodeida governorate as a ballistic missile and bomb-laden UAV and USV launch site, which represents a credible threat for regional and international security, and undermines the political efforts for a successful implementation of the (Stockholm) Agreement.
The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition continues to implement and undertake appropriate procedures to confront these hostile, terrorist acts; in accordance with the customary International Humanitarian Law, and support the political efforts of the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen to end the coup, and reach a comprehensive political solution.”
