Saudi-led coalition says thwarts Houthi attack on oil tanker

Yemen's Houthis fire ballistic missile at Saudi military airport

Colonel Turki al-Maliki, the spokesperson of the Arab coalition forces said that the air defense forces of the coalition spotted at 7:56 am on Friday morning, the launch of a ballistic missile from within the Yemeni territory in the direction of Najran in Saudi Arabia.

It provided no further details and there was no immediate comment from the Saudi-led coalition, fighting the rebels since 2015, on whether the missile caused material damage or casualties.

The Red Sea is a key shipping route for world trade that connects the Middle East to Europe via the Suez Canal. He pointed out that the port of Hodeidah is a starting point for operations threatening maritime navigation, and Houthi militias threaten air navigation over Sanaa.

"These (missile launch) are aimed at threatening the security of not only Saudi Arabia but also the region and the world as firing of ballistic missiles targeting densely populated cities and villages is contrary to global humanitarian law", he said in Riyadh.




United Nations officials have been trying to get the two sides back to the negotiating table after talks collapsed 2016.

Yemen, one of the Arab world's poorest countries, is embroiled in a proxy war between the Houthis, who are allied with Iran, and a US -backed military coalition headed by Saudi Arabia.

The war has killed more than 10,000 Yemenis, mostly civilians, and pushed the country to the brink of mass starvation.

Saudi-led coalition warplanes, meanwhile, flew over Ataq to protect Tariq's convoy after he arrived in the city to offer condolences to the family of Arif al-Zouka, the head of the slain president's General People's Congress (GPC), who was also reportedly killed by Houthi militiamen last month.
