Houthi militants

The Iranian news agency Tasnim published yesterday new details about the surface-to-air missile claimed to have downed a Royal Saudi Air Force Tornado IDS over Sa'ada and hit another F-15S over Sana'a earlier this week.

A spokesman for the joint coalition forces said: "The Arab Coalition Forces Command implemented a private joint operation to evacuate two pilots in participation of air and land forces where the two pilots were evacuated into the Kingdom's territories".

Tribesmen loyal to the Houthi movement hold their weapons as they attend a gathering to mark 1000 days of the Saudi-led military intervention in the Yemeni conflict, in Sanaa, Yemen December 21, 2017.

"In a blatant violation of global law, the Iranian-Houthi militia on Saturday attempted an attack by three remote-controlled drone boats, targeting a Saudi oil tanker and threatening to disrupt navigation in Bab El-Mandeb strait", Colonel Turki Al-Maliki.

The Iran-backed rebels had fired a ballistic missile at Najran on January 5 that was also intercepted by the Saudi air defence.
