DUBAI: A Houthi ballistic missile injured several civilian in Yemen’s Marib city, Yemen’s state news agency Saba New reported.
The missile was launched on July 8 out of Yemen, Saudi-led Arab coalition’s spokesman Col. Turki Al-Maliki said.
The attack is a clear violation of international humanitarian rights and the coalition will continue taking all necessary steps to reduce the capabilities of the militia, he added.
A day before the attack, a Yemeni military court in Marib held the initial session of the trial of Iran-backed Houthi leaders on Tuesday, accused of masterminding the coup against the internationally recognized government of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi in 2015 and the subsequent military campaign.
The defendants faced charges of forming a terrorist armed group called Ansar Allah, colluding with the Lebanese group Hezbollah and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, revolting against the republican system, putting Masur Hadi under house arrest and trying to kill him.
