What are the latest field developments in Yemen?

Yesterday, Friday, the coalition announced that 180 Houthi militants were killed in a series of air strikes carried out by its planes in the Marib Governorate.

Today, Saturday, the Arab coalition announced the interception and destruction of a booby-trapped drone launched by the Yemeni Houthi movement towards southwestern Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi-led coalition said, in a brief statement carried by the Kingdom’s official news agency “SPA”, that “the Saudi air defenses intercepted and destroyed a booby-trapped drone launched by the terrorist Houthi militia towards the city of Jazan.”

The statement did not provide further details about the incident.

The attack comes after the coalition announced yesterday, Friday, the killing of 180 Houthi militants in a series of air strikes carried out by its planes in the Marib Governorate, central Yemen.

The Yemeni Houthi group launches from time to time attacks with ballistic missiles, drones and booby-trapped boats on Saudi areas and targets. On the other hand, the Arab coalition continuously announces that most of these attacks have been thwarted, while some of them have caused civilian casualties.

The latest of these attacks was what the coalition announced, last Wednesday, that its forces had destroyed two booby-trapped boats launched by the Houthis launched from the coast of Hodeidah, and thwarted an imminent attack, without giving further details.

Since the beginning of last February, the Houthi militia has escalated its operations against Saudi Arabia, in conjunction with pressures from the United Nations, Washington and the European Union to stop the war that has been going on for more than 7 years.

The Houthi militia says that the intense escalation of ballistic missiles and drones against Saudi Arabia comes in response to the Saudi-led coalition’s support for government forces in Yemen.
