The Houthi militia has incurred heavy human and material losses since it began an aggressive attack towards the Ma’rib Governorate, which is home to more than two million displaced people who fled the areas under the control of the Houthis militia.

The militia launched a terrorist operation on Tuesday from Sanaa airport, details of which will be announced later.

On December 6, 2021, Saudi air defense destroys ballistic missile launched towards Riyadh.

On Sunday evening, December 5, the coalition said that the Saudi defenses had intercepted and destroyed a drone, which was launched to target civilians in the kingdom.

It is noteworthy that last November 17, the Saudi defenses intercepted and destroyed a booby-trapped drone that was launched towards Khamis Mushait in the Kingdom.

On November 8, a booby-trapped march launched by the Houthi militia towards the Kingdom was also destroyed.

The Iran-backed Houthi militia launched in February a major offensive toward Marib in an attempt to seize control of the province, the last northern stronghold of the Saudi-backed Yemeni government.

Yemen has been mired in civil war since September 2014 when the Houthi militia forced the internationally recognized government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi out of the capital Sanaa.
