UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — An Arab coalition in Yemen said on Saturday that several unmanned aerial vehicles of Shiite Shiite insurgents from the Ansar Alla (Houthis) movement were destroyed, an official spokesman for the Arab forces, Turki al-Maliki, said.
According to him, “drones were sent towards civilian targets” in the Saudi city of Khamis Mushait. He emphasized that all attempts by the Hussites to use drones for their attacks are “doomed to failure.”
“The command of the coalition forces will continue to take measures to deter these terrorist forces in order to deprive them of their potential in compliance with the provisions of international humanitarian law,” the document says.
Since August 2014, a military confrontation has continued in Yemen between forces on the side of President Abd Rabbou Mansour Hadi and Shiite rebels. Since March 2015, a number of Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia have entered into hostilities on the Hadi side. From that moment, the Hussites began to strike in the kingdom in response to the bombing of their facilities in Yemen.
