Riyadh : Colonel Turki Al Malki, Spokesman for the Arab Coalition Forces in Yemen, accused the Houthi militias of carrying out mortar attacks on Al Thawra Hospital and the fish market in Hodeida, while denying that the coalition carried out any attacks.

“The Arab Coalition did not conduct any operations in Hodeida on Friday,” Al Malki said.

“The coalition follows a strict and transparent approach based on international law. We will investigate any allegations, and if there is any responsibility on our part, we will be transparent,” he added.

He stressed that the coalition's operations will continue until the liberation of Hodeida and its port.

“The strategic goal of the coalition's operations is to reinstate legitimacy in Yemen,” he said in conclusion.

Zero Coalition operations yesterday involved targets close to the hospital.”
