The Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen said on Sunday that it carried out airstrikes on Houthi positions in Sanaa and other provinces.


“The targeting of civilians and civilian facilities is a red line,” Coalition spokesman Col. Turki al-Malki was quoted as saying by the official Saudi Press Agency.


He was referring to the attempted missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia.


“The terrorist (Houthi) leaders will be held accountable,” he said.


The Coalition also said it intercepted and destroyed at least 12 explosives-laden drones and two ballistic missiles the militias fired on Sunday at Saudi Arabia.
