Yemen's Saudi-Led coalition said on Monday it intercepted and destroyed four missiles and six explosive drones launched overnight by Houthi forces towards the kingdom.

Cross-border attacks by the Iran-aligned Houthi movement have escalated since late May when a truce prompted by the novel coronavirus expired. In late June, missiles reached the Saudi capital Riyadh.

The coalition, in a statement published by the Saudi state news agency SPA, did not say where the objects were intercepted, but said the drones had been launched from the Houthi-controlled capital Sanaa towards Saudi Arabia.

The General Secretariat of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, OIC, condemned the Houthi terrorist militia’s launching of booby-trapped drones and ballistic missiles towards the kingdom.

In a statement, the OIC Secretary-General, Dr Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen, reaffirmed the OIC’s support for the efforts of the forces of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen and the OIC’s full stand and solidarity with Saudi Arabia in all its actions to counter this dangerous terrorism.

The Secretary-General held the Houthi terrorist militia and those backing it with money and weapons, fully responsible for these terrorist acts targeting civilians and civilian objects, inside Yemen and neighbouring countries.

The coalition intervened in Yemen in March 2015 after the Houthis ousted the Saudi-backed, internationally recognised government from the capital, Sanaa, in late 2014.

The United Nations recently launched virtual talks among the warring parties on a permanent ceasefire and confidence-building steps to restart peace negotiations.

But discussions have been complicated by the surge in violence since the ceasefire expired.
