2022-05-16 | Since 1 Month

Riyadh (Debriefer) The Saudi authorities on Saturday executed a Yemeni national on a charge of belonging to and spying for the Houthi group, the Saudi interior ministry tweeted, in the absence of information on the trial procedures that led to the sentence.
"Mohamed Abdul Basit al-Moalimi was executed on a charge of joining the Houthi group, training on the use of arms and explosives, and illegally getting into the Kingdom to commit a terrorist crime," the ministry said.
The man "located and sent coordinates of many military and vital sites inside the Kingdom, leading to the targeting of a site in Riyadh."
The criminal court convicted al-Moalimi of the above charges and upheld the death sentence that was executed on Saturday, the ministry added.
No immediate statement has been released by the Houthi group on the execution.
Saudi Arabia has been leading a military coalition in Yemen since 26 March 2015, in support of forces loyal to UN-recognized government to retake areas seized by the Iranian-backed Houthi group.
