Houthis attack to Saudi Arabia: Three bomb-laden UAVs launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militia


On 23 January, Saudi air defenses thwarted an attack on Riyadh by Iran-backed Houthi militia in Yemen. The Arab-led Coalition in Yemen said it had “intercepted and destroyed a hostile air target going toward Riyadh.”


On the 15th of January, the Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen Brigadier General Turki Al-Malki stated that “Joint Coalition forces have successfully intercepted and destroyed, 3 bomb-laden UAVs launched towards the Kingdom. These bomb-laden UAVs were launched by the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia from (Hodeida) Governorate, and were intercepted and destroyed”. 


The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen continues to undertake all appropriate procedures to handle hostile, terrorist acts by the Houthi militia, which represents a credible threat to regional and international security. Houthis keeps violating the Stockholm Agreement and keeps using Hodeida Governorate in Yemen as a launch site for hostile acts and terrorist attacks through launching ballistic missiles, bomb-laden UAVs and bomb-laden USVs.  


The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition will continue to undertake all appropriate actions to manage to threats to peace and security in accordance with the customary International Humanitarian Law, while continuing to support the political efforts exerted by the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen to end the coup, and reach a comprehensive political solution
