Saudi-led coalition strikes Houthi positions in Yemen

Saudi-led coalition air strikes on a marketplace and house in rebel-held northern Yemen have left at least 14 people dead, witnesses and a rebel-run news agency said Thursday.

"The port of Hodeida is a launching pad for terrorist operations threatening navigation in the Red Sea and the Bab al-Mandab Strait", coalition spokesman Turki al-Maliki said late Wednesday.

The spokesman said that this hostile action by the Iranian-backed Houthi militias proves the continued involvement of the Iranian regime in supporting the Houthi armed militias in clear and explicit defiance of the United Nations resolutions 2216 and 2231.

On Dec. 19, 2017, the Houthi movement fired a ballistic missile toward the royal palace in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

Huawei's Consumers May Face Setback due to AT&T Deal Breakdown
But the plan was dismissed over political pressure from USA lawmakers who saw Huawei as a security threat. Verizon is also under the same pressure as AT&T , according to Android Police .

Al-Maliki continued to say the Houthis are using the port of Hudaydah as a means for "smuggling advanced weaponry, but also as a launch pad for attacks on worldwide ships". He also underlined the need to hold Iran accountable for its support and flagrant defiance of global norms and values.

The presentation dealt with the total permits issued during the past week, while the coalition forces detected the number of ballistic missiles fired from within Yemeni territory towards the cities of the Kingdom, as they reached 87 ballistic missiles, while the projectiles were 66,119.

As civilian deaths have surged in recent weeks, it's become increasingly common for such incidents to happen without any official Saudi accounting of why the site was targeted.

The pictures showed that the missile fragments were scattered on one of the cars, which was partially destroyed, without any injuries reported.
