The Saudi TV quoted the Riyadh-led coalition fighting the Houthis as saying that it had destroyed a booby-trapped drone launched by the Houthis towards the southern region of the Kingdom, and there was no comment from the Houthis.
Yesterday, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported that a drone launched by the Houthis towards the south of the Kingdom was intercepted and destroyed, and a Saudi spokesman said that attempts to attack civilians in a deliberate manner constitute war crimes. Meanwhile, the Houthi group confirmed that it had targeted warplanes landmarks at Abha International Airport with drones.
On the other hand, the US Treasury announced yesterday in a statement that it had blacklisted Mansour Al-Saadi, Chief of Staff of the Houthi Naval Forces, and Ahmed Ali Ahsan al-Hamzi, commander of the air forces and air defense forces loyal to them.
The US Department added that Al-Saadi received extensive training in Iran and helped smuggle weapons to Yemen, while Al-Hamzi obtained Iranian-made weapons for use in civil war, including launching drone attacks.
