The attacks were launched from Sana'a and deliberately targeted Saudi civilians and civilian objects, Al Maliki said in a statement published by the Saudi Press Agency, SPA.
He added that the militia was "deliberately escalating hostilities" in Yemen and neighbouring countries using ballistic missiles and drones, noting that the Joint forces will continue to foil threats through "monitoring, destruction and tackling them within areas under the Houthi militia’s control."
