MOGADISHU: A specialized team from the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) visited Mogadishu to inspect its projects, which are being implemented according to international standards.
The team monitored the implementation stages of a dialysis center funded by KSRelief, the first of its kind in the Somali capital, to treat kidney-failure patients for free.
The team also inspected a center charged with establishing and equipping a dialysis center in Garoowe, capital of the Puntland region.
The team then met Puntland’s president, who expressed his appreciation for the Kingdom’s support.
The team examined a water and environmental sanitation project for central Somalia and Puntland, aimed at fighting desertification.
KSRelief is active in 42 countries on four continents through 695 humanitarian and relief projects.

Houthis targetted civilian facility in Najran with an explosives-laden drone, says Arab Coalition

  • Houthis also fired two ballistic missiles toward the holy city of Makkah and Jeddah on Monday

RIYADH: Houthi militants had tried to hit a civilian facility in Saudi Arabia's southern border province of Najran with a drone carrying explosives, the Arab Coalition supporting Yemen's legitimate government said on Tuesday.
In a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), Colonel Turki Al-Maliki, the spokesman of the Saudi-led military coalition said the target was a vital facility.
"The Houthi-backed terrorist militia of Iran continues to carry out acts of terrorism that pose a real threat to regional and international security by targeting civilian objects and civilian facilities, as well as civilian citizens and residents of all nationalities," Al-Maliki said.

The statement did not mention casualties and gave no further details.

Earlier on Monday, Al-Maliki said Houthis fired two ballistic missiles toward the holy city of Makkah and Jeddah but both were shot down by Saudi air defense forces.

The Iran-backed Houthis have fired dozens of missiles at targets in Saudi Arabia, including the capital Riyadh, since the Arab Coalition intervened in 2015 to restore the government of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, which was ousted in a Houthi coup.
