Riyadh, February 28, 2021, SPA -- Statement by the Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen Brigadier General Turki Al-Malki
“Joint Coalition Forces have intercepted and destroyed Saturday night and Sunday morning (27-28 February 2021) (1) ballistic missile toward (Riyadh) launched by the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia, and (6) bomb-laden UAVs toward the Kingdom launched deliberately and systematically to target civilians and civilian objects in the Southern Region, Jazan and Khamis Mushait.
The terrorist Houthi militia is purposely escalating the deliberate, hostile, terrorist targeting of civilians and civilian objects using ballistic missiles and bomb-laden UAVs.
The Royal Saudi Air Defense and Royal Saudi Air Force have exhibited great competence in countering and thwarting these threats through monitoring launches in Houthi-controlled areas and intercepting and destroying the terrorist threats.
The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition will continue to implement all necessary precautions to safeguard civilians and civilian objects, and all required operational procedures to stop such terrorist acts and aggression attempts, and appropriately handle the sources of these threats in accordance with the Customary International Humanitarian Law.”
