Saudi-led Coalition Claims Two Ballistic Missiles Launched By Houthis Failed Midcourse

Two ballistic missiles, which were launched by the Houthis, failed to reach their targets and crashed in northern Yemen, the Saudi-led coalition claimed on October 4.

Col. Turki al-Malki, a spokesman for the coalition, said that the two missiles were launched from “urban areas” in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, which has been under the Houthis’ control since 2015.

“The Houthi militia continue to violate the international, humanitarian law by launching ballistic missiles … The coalition’s joint command will continue to take strict and deterrent measures,” the spokesman said in a statement released by the UAE-based al-Arabiya TV.

According to the coalition, the two missiles landed in the northern Yemeni province of Saada, the Houthis’ heartland.

The Houthis has not commented on the coalition claims, yet. Furthermore, these claims have not been confirmed by any local source in Saada.

Last month, the Houthis announced a peace initiative, under which they halted their attacks on Saudi Arabia. The coalition ignored the proposal. However, the Yemeni group appears to be still committed to it.

  • The saudis need to to accept the peace initiative and withdrew from the Yemenis soil. The houties prove they could destroy the Saudis and the UAE economy.. They should just take the peace offer and save face,if I was the Houthies i would’ve lunch a major attack again on the Saudis this time I make them pay double.

      two major operational successes in a short period of time – guess they are working away on the third and fourth to come as surprises. saw that clown prince, mohammed bin salman of fake leonardi da vinci buy fame, asked the iraqi pm to open up a channel with iran but also set out certain stipulations that iran would have to abide to and bet your broad behind that iran ain’t very tempted to
      negotiate anything coupled with stipulations by the saudis. so await the next houthi-surprise to be brought forward.

    • You can call me Al

      Do not believe the Saudis, they are so inbred that they are probably talking about their missiles.

    So there you go folks. The Saudis were always able to detect missiles launched they even pin pointed it down to a suburb. Wonders never cease Hey? So know that proves that the attack on its oil facilities was an inside job.
