The Arab Coalition intercepted a Houthi ballistic missile targeting Riyadh, state news agency SPA reported.

The Houthis have launched eight drones and three ballistic missiles towards the city between late Monday and early Tuesday, coalition’s spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki said.

The missile was targeting innocent civilians, Spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki said.

Earlier on Monday, Al-Maliki said that the Houthi militia “launched a number of unmanned (booby-trapped) drones at civilians and civilian objects” from Sa’dah in Yemen. Two were targeting Najran and the other was targeting Jazan.

The Iran-backed militants have targeted Saudi Arabia with 313 ballistic missiles and 357 drones in total, he added.

I think they know the game and how to play.

But something is hindering them from doing so !!

But why ? It would suit for KSA to go on a proxy against Iran’s mischiefs and yet I think they aren’t going after them.

If you look at it from a distance, Observe the situation, It is as if you are allowing a weak country (Iran) to come at your doors from everywhere and threaten you while you being a Might power of the region play the dumb game just like Pakistan is doing from 2 decades, Playing dumb, Going head on instead of Chori chupi...

KSA must realize it’s potential and instead keep Iran busy inside Iran instead of playing the Defensive.

I think this is where Pakistan messed up for Arab coalition, Bajwa might have come forward but Raheel sharif ? Can’t expect him to do such for Arabs.

Strange

Ummmm I don't agree. Everything is obvious in these wars from Yemen to Syria.

Iran has learned everything from Pakistanis. There are Pakistanis who are more Iranians than Iranians themselves.
From Nuclear program to missiles, from jf-17 to everything in HIT, from warfare to proxy, every hard earned knowledge is being leaked out to mulla.

All that glitters is not gold. Not every talented is promoted to three and four star in Pakistan, as it's not the talent that counts in Pakistan. Iran knows it and picked knowledge from lower ranks.
Bajwa is a political worker not a soldier. Raheel is not a good planner.
@Khafee must knows many talented planners which couldn't reach up to three and four stars.
Col Sultan Ameer was one of them. There are many others, can't write names here.

Weakness should be overcome and everything should be re-planned.

Saudi-led coalition destroys four Houthi drones over Yemen - Saudi Press Agency
July 3, 2020

(Reuters) - The Saudi-led military coalition battling the Houthis in Yemen said on Friday it had destroyed four explosive-laden drones launched by the Iran-aligned group in the direction of Saudi Arabia, the official Saudi Press Agency reported.

The drones were intercepted over territory controlled by the Houthis in Yemen, the agency said, citing a statement from the command of the coalition, made up mainly of Saudi and United Arab Emirates forces.


Houthi military spokesman Yahya Saria tweeted that Houthi forces had in fact hit their targets — a control room at Najran airport, weapons storages in King Khalid air base and other military targets — “with high accuracy”.

The Western-backed coalition on Wednesday announced the launch of a new military operation against the Houthis after they stepped up cross-border missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia.

Last week, Houthi fighters fired missiles that reached the Saudi capital Riyadh in the first such assault since a six-week ceasefire, prompted by the novel coronavirus epidemic, expired in late May. The coalition said it had intercepted the attack.

The coalition intervened in Yemen in March 2015 after the Houthis ousted the Saudi-backed internationally-recognised government from the capital, Sanaa, in late 2014. The Houthis say they are fighting a corrupt system.

Saudi air defenses foil Houthi missile, drone strikes on civilian targets
Updated 13 July 2020
1594689694200.png


RIYADH: Saudi Arabia's Air Defense Forces intercepted and destroyed two ballistic missiles and six drones fired by the "terrorist Houthi militia" toward Saudi Arabia on Sunday night, the alliance said early Monday.

Colonel Turki al-Maliki, spokesman of the Arab Coalition supporting Yemen's legitime government, said the Iran-backed militia fired the missiles and booby-trapped unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) from the Yemeni capital Sanaa toward civilian targets in Saudi Arabia.

It was fortunate that the weapons of war were destroyed before they could hit their targets, Al-Maliki said, without mentioning which places were targetted.

The Houthis have for the past five years targetted various civilian areas and industrial sites in the Kingdom. Among these were the airport in Riyadh, an oil refinery in the Eastern Province, various targets in western regions of Najran, Jazan and Asir, as well as the holy city of Makkah.

Al-Maliki accused the Houthi militia of escalating the hostilities to target civilians inside Yemen and neighboring countries and that such atrocities would not go unpunished.

He said the Coalition and takes will "take the necessary operational measures to stop these terrorist acts ... in accordance with international humanitarian law and its customary rules

Yemen's warring parties agree to their largest prisoner swap as U.N. seeks ceasefire

September 27, 2020 / 5 hours ago
By Stephanie Nebehay

GLION, Switzerland (Reuters) - The U.N. Special Envoy for Yemen wants to build on Sunday’s announcement of the largest prisoner exchange agreement in the five-year conflict to pave the way for a national ceasefire and a political solution to end the war, he said.

Yemen’s warring parties agreed to exchange 1,081 prisoners, including 15 Saudis, as part of trust-building steps aimed at reviving a stalled peace process, the United Nations said.

“I was told that it’s very rare to have prisoner releases of this scale during the conflict, that they mostly happen after a conflict,” U.N. envoy Martin Griffiths told Reuters in the Swiss village of Glion where the deal was announced.

The timing, sequence and logistics of the exchange were still being finalised by the International Committee of the Red Cross, which will organise the transfers, he said.

Griffiths is trying to restart political negotiations to end the war, which has killed tens of thousands of people and caused what the United Nations describes as the world’s largest humanitarian crisis with millions on the brink of famine.

The Yemeni government, backed by a Saudi-led military coalition, and the Iran-aligned Houthi movement they have been battling for over five years signed a deal in late 2018 to swap some 15,000 detainees split between both sides but the pact has been slowly and only partially implemented.

“Our overall aim at the moment is to bring an agreement on what we call a joint declaration which is a national ceasefire to end the war in Yemen,” Griffiths said, adding it would be accompanied by measures to open up ports, airports and roads.

“This achievement here I think will undoubtedly have a bounce effect for that, that it will encourage the parties to go the extra mile to resolve final differences,” he said.

Heads of the delegations hugged after closing their discussions, with Griffiths saying: “Well done, well done.”

“BUILDING TRUST”
Saudi Arabia welcomed the agreement as a step towards a comprehensive political solution and called on the Houthis not to undermine Griffiths’ efforts.

“The aim behind this agreement is purely humanitarian. It will also establish a solid base for dialogue and for reaching a comprehensive political solution,” said Colonel Turki al-Malki, spokesman for the military coalition.

During a news conference in Riyadh, Malki said the first phase of the agreement would release 400 people, including 15 Saudi soldiers and four Sudanese, while the coalition would free 681 Houthi fighters in the largest swap since the peace talks in Stockholm in December 2018.

Abdulkader al-Murtada, of the Houthi prisoner exchange committee Abdulkader al-Murtada, gave the same figures to reporters in Glion, saying: “Of course this file is considered to be one of building trust between the parties and if there has been any positive movement in the prisoners’ file, without a doubt it will influence the other files.”

ICRC Middle East director Fabrizio Carboni called for “security and logistical guarantees” for swift releases.

Yemen has been mired in conflict since the Houthis ousted the internationally recognised government in the capital, Sanaa, in late 2014, prompting the Western-backed coalition to intervene in March 2015.

The conflict, seen in the region as a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran, has been in military stalemate for years with the Houthis holding Sanaa and most big urban centres.

The Saudi-led coalition said on Sunday it had intercepted a drone over Yemen that the Houthis had fired towards southern Saudi Arabia.
