Yemeni Houthis said on the 20th local time that the armed forces used drones carrying bombs to attack multiple targets in Saudi Arabia on the same day.
According to Masila TV station controlled by the Houthis in Yemen, Yahaiya Suriya, spokesman of the Houthis, issued a statement on the same day saying that in response to the Saudi-led multinational coalition military operations in Yemen, the armed forces used drones to attack King Khalide Air Force Base in the city of Haimis Mushet in Saudi Arabia, Ji There are many targets such as Dashi’s international airport and Saudi Aramco’s refinery.
According to Saudi Arabian TV, the multinational coalition intercepted a drone carrying explosives released by Houthis from Sana’a International Airport in Yemen on the same day and was responding to “other threats from Houthis”.
Since February this year, with the large-scale offensive launched by Houthis in the central province of Malib in Yemen, the multinational coalition forces have intensified air strikes against the Houthis. Since mid-October, the multinational coalition forces have announced the killing of dozens or hundreds of Houthis on an almost daily basis, but the Houthis has not responded to these casualty figures.
In September 2014, the Houthis seized Sana’a, the capital of Yemen, and then occupied southern Yemen. In March 2015, Saudi Arabia and other countries launched a military operation code-named “Decetent Storm” against the Houthis. In December 2018, under the mediation of the United Nations, the Yemeni government and the Houthis reached an agreement on a ceasefire, prisoner-of-war exchange and other topics, but soon the two sides accused each other of breaking the ceasefire agreement.
