HODEIDAH, Yemen, Oct 11 (NNN-WAM) - The anti-drone defence unit, of the Saudi-led Arab Coalition, has seized an explosive drone, belonging to the Houthi militia.

The Iranian-made Qasef-1 drone was intended to be used in sites of Yemeni Legitimate Forces, in the Yemen's Red Sea Coast.

During the examination of the unmanned aircraft, Arab Coalition specialised teams discovered a large number of explosive materials, meant to be used in terrorist operations, against selected targets, in desperate attempts by the Iranian-backed Houthi militia, to achieve false victories and raise their deteriorating morale, in the wake of their subsequent defeats, in Yemen's West Coast.

The arming of the Houthi militias by Iran in Yemen, is in contrary to the UN Security Council Resolution 2216 of Apr, 2015, which embargoes import of arms to the rebels, and also proves the involvement of the Iranian regime, which is supporting the militias with ballistic missiles and drones, in violation of the decision.-- NNN-WAM
