The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen said it had carried out air strikes on military targets in the capital, Sanaa and Saada, while Reuters quoted the coalition as denying the news that Saudi forces were withdrawing from southern Yemen.
The coalition spokesman stated that the targets included sites for ballistic missiles, drones, and weapons depots.
For his part, the military spokesman for the Ansar Allah Al-Houthi group said that they carried out an operation targeting camps in Dhahran Al-Janoub, Saudi Arabia’s Asir region, Ma’rib and western Taiz.
The military spokesman for the Ansar Allah Al-Houthi group stated that 3 ballistic missiles targeted the camp of the First Regiment in Dhahran Al-Janoub in the Asir region, and that dead and wounded were killed in the attack.
Reuters quoted the coalition as saying that the coalition forces are redeploying in Yemen in line with their strategy to support the Yemeni forces, but they are not withdrawing.
Brigadier General Turki al-Maliki, a spokesman for the coalition, told Reuters that the circulating reports regarding a Saudi military withdrawal from southern Yemen are unfounded and untrue.
The missions of the permanent members of the Security Council called on all Yemeni parties to engage in a real dialogue to reach a comprehensive political solution.
According to a tweet from the US embassy in Yemen, the missions condemned the Houthi attacks against Saudi Arabia, and stressed the need to immediately stop the escalation in Marib.
