Sana'a (Debriefer) The Houthi group on Thursday morning tried an anti-ship missile that was fired from Nihm, east Sana'a City, and fell in the Red Sea, spokesman for the Yemeni national army said, labeling the move as a threat against the regional and international security.
The Iranian-backed group is responsible for this "further hostile operation", Abdu Mujali added in remarks carried by september.net.
All the evidences prove the Iranian IRGC's involvement in firing the missile and persistently supporting the Houthis, he said.
By "this threat, attacks on ports in Shabwa and Hadhramout, and other terrorist offensives, the Houthis undermine the regional and international security," the Yemeni general said according to the defense ministry-run website.
Mujali called on the international community to "bear responsibility, guard global corridors and secure maritime traffic."
No comment has been released by the Houthi group that said last September it would test new maritime weapons.
