The Arab coalition in Yemen, led by Saudi Arabia, announced on Saturday that it is carrying out airstrikes against the threat sources in Sanaa and Hodeidah in Yemen.
The spokesman for the coalition forces, Brigadier General Turki Al-Maliki, confirmed that the military operation will continue until its objectives are achieved.
The coalition had disclosed the start of a response operation to neutralize oil facilities or affect energy security.
He stressed that the goal is to protect global energy sources from hostile attacks and secure supply chains.
The coalition said its forces exercised the highest standards of restraint in Houthi attacks on oil facilities.
He noted that the Houthis must bear the consequences of hostile behavior and noted that the military operation is in its early stages.
On Saturday, the Arab coalition announced the interception and destruction of two drones, launched in Yemeni airspace, towards the Kingdom.
The coalition said the two booby-trapped drones were launched from civilian objects and oil installations in the city of Hodeidah.
The coalition called on civilians not to be present or near any oil sites or facilities in Hodeidah, Yemen.
“We will deal with the sources of the threat and avoid collateral damage to civilian objects and oil installations,” the coalition said in a statement.
This occurs when the Arab coalition considered that the organizations’ silence about attacking civilians using protected sites places them with a moral responsibility.
The Secretary General of the League of Arab States, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, condemned the Houthi attacks on oil installations and infrastructure in Saudi Arabia.
League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit said the continuation of Houthi attacks is a threat to energy supply at a time when the international economy is going through a delicate circumstance.
Arab and international condemnations of the terrorist attacks carried out by the Houthi militia on Friday against civilian buildings and energy facilities in various regions of Saudi Arabia continued.
Arab and international countries and institutions called this operation “cowardly”, stressing that it not only targets civilians, civilian areas and the security of the Kingdom, but also the world’s energy supply sources, which requires action swift international action to stop these attacks and hold the perpetrators accountable.
