Colonel al-Maliki stated that “the Houthi terrorist militia takes from Hodeidah Governorate a place to launch ballistic missiles, drones, booby-trapped and remote-operated boats, as well as random sea deployments, in clear and explicit violation of international humanitarian law and a violation of the provisions of the (Stockholm) Agreement and the Ceasefire Agreement in Hodeidah” .
Colonel Al-Maliki stressed that “the leadership of the Alliance Joint Forces continues to implement strict measures against this terrorist militia, and to neutralize and destroy such capabilities that threaten regional and international security.”
