He indicated that his forces are taking operational measures to protect civilians and deal with the imminent threat.
Earlier, the leader of the Yemeni “Ansar Allah” group, Muhammad Ali Al-Houthi, threatened the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia in Yemen, with attacks if its military operations continued in Yemen.
Saudi Arabia has been leading, since March 26, 2015, a military coalition of Arab and Islamic countries, in support of the internationally recognized Yemeni government, in its quest to restore the capital, Sanaa, and large areas in Yemen, which were seized by the Ansar Allah group in late 2014.
On the other hand, the “Ansar Allah” group carries out attacks with drones, ballistic missiles, and booby-trapped boats, targeting Saudi and Yemeni forces inside Yemen and inside the territory of the Kingdom.
