Yemen Houthi rebels rally against Saudi bombing in Sanaa

Houthi leader Saudi Arabia will eventually fail in Yemen just like in Syria Iraq

Houthi leader Saudi Arabia will eventually fail in Yemen just like in Syria Iraq

At least one person died and two others were injured in the Saudi capital Riyadh in the night between Sunday and Monday following a missile attack carried out by Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen, the state-run Saudi Press Agency reports.

Online videos are raising new questions about Saudi Arabia's claims that it has intercepted almost every ballistic missile launched by Shiite rebels in Yemen with its own Patriot missile systems. One resident uploaded a video that showed missile debris landing on the highway. A coalition spokesman said that the firing of missiles at cities marked a "serious development" and proved allegations by the West and the United...

"These attacks targeting Riyadh and other heavily populated areas are a violation of worldwide law and must stop".

The coalition spokesman also showed several missile "valves" with features known to have been of Iranian make, pointing out that Houthi do not have such capabilities in missiles manufacturing adding that such missiles were created to reach Riyadh.

Missile attacks But the war - which entered its fourth year on Monday - is also spilling into Saudi territory, with dozens of Houthi missile attacks since last year which have affected not only border towns and villages but also the capital Riyadh. Western and Saudi leaders allege that the group is receiving financial and military backing from Iran, a claim that's denied by Tehran.

Saudi Col. Turki al-Maliki said one Egyptian national was killed when shrapnel from an exploding missile fell on a residential neighbourhood.

Sunni-led Saudi Arabia and Shi'ite Iran are involved in what has been called a proxy war in Yemen, where Tehran supports the Shi'ite Huthi rebels fighting against the Saudi-backed Yemeni government.

I am sincerely sorry for the pain which has been caused, and pledge to redouble my efforts to bring this anxiety to an end. The Labour Party is planning to demand that Parliament have the power to stop a no-deal Brexit.

The source urged the worldwide community, in particular the UN Security Council, to take action to stop such attacks.

Missiles were also reportedly fired at airports in the southern Saudi cities of Abha, Jizan and Najran.

Badr missile has been developed after "three years of steadfastness in the face of US-Saudi aggression, and in allegiance to the blood of martyrs", the statement added.

Houthi ballistic missiles have increased in range over time, with the first one targeting Riyadh fired on May 19, 2017, according to the United Nations.

The strikes come after the United States defence secretary last week urged Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman during his visit to Washington to pursue "urgent efforts" to end Yemen's wrenching conflict.

The war began in March 2015 when the coalition began pounding the Houthis with air strikes after they took control of the capital, Sana'a.

The poll showed that 88 percent of respondents believed their country should stop arms exports to all countries where there is a risk they could be used against civilian populations and specifically 75 percent for those operating in Yemen.
