In reference to what was announced by Yemeni Ministry of Petroleum and Minerals regarding the terrorist Iran-backed Houthi militia’s targeting of Safer Oil Pipeline’s pumping station in (Sirwah) West of (Ma’rib) governorate, and what that action represents in targeting Yemen’s national capacities, critical infrastructures and Yemeni assets and gains. This terrorist act of aggression is a continuation to the terrorist Houthi militia’s violations and ongoing acts of vandalism against the brotherly people of Yemen
The Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen COL Turki Al-Malki issues the following statement:
“In continuation of its terrorist, hostile acts, the terrorist Iran-backed Houthi militia launched a ballistic missile at (0633) Saturday April 04 2020, from (Sana’a) using civilian objects as a launching site.
The ballistic missile fell, after traveling (200 KM) from launch, in Yemeni territory in (Al Safra) directorate, (Sa’dah) governorate in an agricultural area of civilian and civilian object capacity, that is in close proximity to (‘Akwan) village.
The continuation of the terrorist Houthi militia’s violations of the International Humanitarian Law through launching ballistic missiles that fall indiscriminately on civilians and populated areas is deliberate, and threatens the lives of hundreds of civilians.
The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition will continue to implement decisive measures to neutralize and destroy these ballistic capabilities in protection of civilians in Yemen, as well as regional and international security.”
