Houthi Fighters from Yemen, while fighting a Saudi-led coalition, fired two ballistic missiles into Saudi Arabia, which landed in a deserted border area in the south of the country. The coalition said in a statement from Saudi Arabia-run Al Ikhbaria TV that the missiles were launched from the northern Yemeni province of Saada on Tuesday.
The coalition said that it responded to ballistic missiles by destroying a bunker and launchpad of missiles at Sada. The statement said that to protect the citizens, we are taking measures to eliminate the dangers. The Huti rebels have not immediately responded to this.
Claim of successful drone strikes
The Huti group said on Monday that it fired three armed drones at military bases. The drone attack targeted Abha Airport and King Khalid Air Base in the southern city of Khamis Mushayat. Houthi spokesperson Yahya Saraya said the attack proved successful. Although the coalition did not confirm the drone strikes but said that a Hooti drone was caught which was heading towards Khamis Mushayat.
Recently the attacks of Houthi rebels in Saudi Arabia has increased. On March 7, the coalition said several drones and missiles were prevented from moving towards their targets, heading towards the world’s largest oil loading facility located between an oil storage yard, a refinery site and the sea at Ras Tamura. .
War fighting under the leadership of Saudi Arabia
Explain that many Gulf countries under the leadership of Saudi Arabia have been fighting a war against the Houthi rebels in Yemen for the last five years. Due to this, a humanitarian crisis has arisen here. At the same time, former US President Donald Trump’s administration was supporting Saudi and its faction in the war against the Hooties and provided them with weapons for the war. But recently the administration of President Joe Biden stopped this support and prohibited the supply of weapons. It is believed that the new US President’s attitude towards Yemen is going to soften.
Recently, the US said that it was going to remove the status of being a terrorist organization on the Houthi rebels of Yemen. In the last moments of his tenure, Trump had given Hootis the status of a terrorist organization, due to which he received a lot of criticism. Due to Trump’s decision, a humanitarian crisis arose in Yemen. The United Nations has described Yemen as the world’s biggest humanitarian crisis.
