DUBAI: Houthi militants launched a missile targeting Al-Jawf in Yemen, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Saturday.

The attack was launched from the governorate of Amran and the missile hit the northern city, the Arab Coalition’s spokesperson Col. Turki Al-Maliki said.

The militia continue to violate international and humanitarian laws by launching ballistic missiles on areas with civilians, he added.

The coalition continues to take severe measures to stop Houthi attacks, Al-Maliki said.

On Friday, the Arab Coalition said a marine mine laid by Yemen’s Houthi militia had hit a commercial cargo ship in the southern Red Sea, Al-Ekhbariya TV reported.

The coalition said there were minor damages to the ship, but that no casualties were reported. 

The Iran-backed Houthi militia continues to plant marine mines in the southern Red Sea and in the Bab Al-Mandab strait, which “is a serious threat to international shipping and global trade,” the coalition added.
