Coalition conducts military operation in Sanaa in response to imminent threats

JEDDAH, Oct 21 (KUNA) -- The Saudi-led Arab coalition supporting legitimacy in Yemen has conducted a military operation against legitimate military targets in Sana'a in response to the threats, and dangers of imminent attacks that use ballistic missiles and bomb-laden drones to target civilians in the Kingdom, said the coalition spokesperson Thursday.
Saudi Press Agency (SPA) quoted the coalition spokesperson Brigadier General Turki Al-Malki as saying "The Coalition has exercised during past months utmost restraint in face of the gross humanitarian violations and deliberate, systematic, hostile, brutal attacks by the Iran-backed Houthi militia, in support of UN efforts and initiatives to reach a sustainable and comprehensive political resolution in Yemen." The military operation was conducted in line with the customary International Humanitarian Law, and took into account preventative measures to spare civilians any collateral damage, he added.
