Houthis continue to pose big danger to international navigation, says Yemeni vice president

ADEN: Yemeni Vice President Ali Mohsen Saleh expressed his appreciation for the Saudi-led Arab coalition for supporting Yemen’s legitimate government.
Addressing an expanded military meeting of heads of bodies and directors of the Ministry of Defense of Yemen, he reaffirmed that his country “is at an extraordinary stage in every sense of the word.”
He said the Houthi coup against Yemen and the militias’ capture of power had brought immense suffering to the Yemeni people.
The Houthi militias, supported by Iran, are a real danger to the region as they continue to pose a threat to international navigation and global peace and security, he said.
The vice president said Houthis were also carrying out repeated attacks on civilians in Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
The latest incident was the bombing of Taiz and the launch of a ballistic missile targeting Riyadh, he added.
